    The mounting kits for the BMW E46 3 series have the head unit stick out of the dash so that the face can drop down to load CDs. Looks like crap.

Newer radios are connected to permanent power all the time and would only start when receiving the appropriate CAN signals. So even if you connect one of those new radios in an old car like...
