I don't think it's desired over aftermarket for e46.

for e36 though, it is.

If you buy a regular Deck it will stick out like a sore thumb. The only other option is to spend $$$ on a Double Din and Bezel. That's the reason why most people dont swap it out of their e46s.

03+ has the aux function
05+ Can play Mp3s

And another thing, Only certian decks will allow you to keep the steeringwheel controls and even then you need a seperate connector for it.
