Excellent product, I only rated it a 4 due to some initial frustrations and not sure what fixed it. Instructions were were plenty good enough and anyone with some basic skills should be able to easily connect the wiring harnesses to the new radio. The initialization of the unit flashed all the proper LEDs, and found the right radio manufacture, however 2 seconds later it went into the alternating green/red flashing which means it doesn't recognize the vehicle type. I reinitialized the unit 3 more times with the same result. The manual said I likely didn't have the correct wires connected. The radio was working but the steering wheel controls were not. I had run out of time to trouble shoot any longer and I wanted to see how it sounded on the road before I had to give up for the day. While I was driving I wanted to turn up the volume a bit and without thinking I used the steering wheel controls and they worked, surprised, I tried the music select and it changed to the next song. At some point the unit figured out what vehicle it was installed in and fixed its self. I'm very happy about that because I was positive I had connected everything according to instructions, but disappointed that after all the time spent on several negative troubleshooting attempts I did not know why it failed to initially identify my vehicle.

Features

Vehicle Compatibility: The AX-BM9112 radio replacement interface module from Axxess Integrate allows you to replace the factory radio in a 2001-2006 Mini Cooper Hatchback and 2005-2008 Mini Cooper Convertible featuring a stock Harman Kardon amplifier with an aftermarket head unit while retaining important factory features.

Retained Factory Features: The Axxess Integrate AX-BM9112 retains the following OEM features in your vehicle after you have replaced your factory radio with an aftermarket head unit.

  • Factory Amplifier & Audio Level Adjustments: The Axxess Integrate AX-BM9112 retains the vehicle's factory Harman Kardon amplifier. It also retains factory audio level adjustments such as Front & Balance Control, Driver Mode, and Preset EQ (Normal/Spatial/Electronics/Instrument/Festival). These factory audio level adjustments are done through the vehicle's steering wheel controls (if equipped) or through the included  momentary switch).
  • Steering Wheel Controls: If your aftermarket head unit is steering wheel control ready, the included ASWC-1 steering wheel control interface module and harness allow you to retain your vehicle's factory steering wheel controls. *The supplied momentary switch will be used in vehicles that are not equipped with steering wheel controls.
  • Factory Display: The AX-BM9112 also retains factory display of date, time, and temperature.
  • R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power): The AX-BM9112 retains the R.A.P. function in your vehicle. R.A.P. (Retained Accessory Power) supplies power to the radio after the ignition is shut off until one of the front doors are opened.
  • Warning Chimes: In addition, the AX-BM9112 will retain factory warning chimes when present in the vehicle.

Outputs: The Axxess Integrate AX-BM9112 provides a 12V/10A accessory output and an illumination output to make installation easier and less time consuming.

  • Accessory (12V/10A): Because there is no 12-volt accessory wire in the factory harness of your vehicle, the AX-BM9112 provides a 12-volt, 10-amp switched accessory output. This prevents you from having to run an accessory wire to the fuse box or underneath the steering column when installing your aftermarket stereo.
  • Illumination Output: The AX-BM9112 also has an illumination output if your new aftermarket head unit has an illumination wire.
