    After-market radio with steering wheel controls.

    2004 Z4 - I want to replace the original radio, but I don't want to lose the functionality of the steering wheel controls. Also, I noticed it has speed-sensitive radio volume. I'd hate to lose that by installing a new radio.

    Has anyone installed a new radio and gotten it to interface with the steering wheel controls? Have you gotten an after-market radio to work with speed-sensitive volume? Are there other features that will go away once I swap hardware?

    Thanks for any info.
