It may take some searching, but it is a special euro plug. I've seen them on Ebay once in a while, and BMW did/does sell them as a replacement electrical connector. Might want to spend some more quality time with RealOEM - or email Tischer.

Any car audio place will have one. I do know that the plugs differ for '01/'02 versus '03 and up... had to swap one on my friends '01 a few weeks ago. Was $10 at Best Buy

If you want to replace the whole cable (I recommend it, it was the only way to restore good reception to my car) the part # is 61126912488. The other end of it terminates in the C-pillar at the antenna splitter so it's a bit of a haul to tuck the new wire in.


Part #4 - 61126912488

I believe its in the shark fin on the roof?

I found a plug at the stereo store, I am trying to crimp it on the original wire, if that doesnt work I will have to replace the entire wire
