Ops! Trying to fit a after market radio adapter to the car's original radio point and it doesn't fit, that the two don't connect. The after market one feels like it's to big? Strange! I've for 3 of them and there all the same

There are two types for the E46 - a round pin version and a quad lock version. You don't need the after market adaptor if you're using the OEM headunit though?

The supplier - Celsus - have a dreadful website. Here's the Amazon version!

I can't make out from your original post what you have? Have you got a Fakra on the new one and OEM antennae (male?) on the ariel lead?
