I'm fully in agreement, having put a Pioneer unit in my old Toyota Landcruiser, but that one at least fit very nicely in the OEM spot. In the E46, without perhaps a completely different trim design that I have yet to see, double-DIN units look completely out of place because of the huge space left and right of the screen that is typically just left to black plastic. Currently that's occupied by buttons/knobs.
