    If you google you'll find what you need...I was looking a while back and while I didn't save the links, I don't remember it being too hard to find the diagrams.

    nah... the old e34.net site had it, I used it yesterday.

    I suggest instead you go buy a plug and a few inches of wire out of a junked car (or a part out).

    Was there an aftermarket radio there that you're taking out and replacing with a different one?

    If so there should be the leads from the previous aftermarket radio. You could solder your aftermarket radio harness to the color-matched leads from the old aftermarket radio (just cut that connector off).

    If you don't have aftermarket leads, you'll need that 5series diagram to match the wires and solder them together. Or you could do wut AE suggested and grab a male and female harness and solder both to their respective wires. Check Metra Online for parts. They make both connectors if you choose to take that route.

    If space is really tight and/or you can't solder you could use crimp connectors in place of soldering, its not the ideal but it'll work nonetheless.

    Good luck

    that plug is listed as for the 3 series (andthe 5's are the same)

    If the OEM plug is gone, My suggestion is to get an OEM plug and splice it back in, then use the Metra adapter to the oem plug.

    Alternately as carmaniac said, unless it is an OLD pioneer (pre99), all aftermarket radios use the same color codes, so red, yellow, white etc can be spliced like for like.
