Hi Mat. I seee this is an old thread, but I've had to replace the original tuner on Kim due to rust, with a BM54.
I presume the 54 is an updated version of the 24. Is this correct?
Also, it has a 10amp fuse on it where the original had a 5amp fuse. Will using this create any problems?
Thank you,
Adrian.

If you bought a round pin BM54 Back then it’s not that different to the BM24.
If you bought a flat pin version, and have the adaptor, I’d love to try it in my Typhoon before buying one.

Thanks Al.
I think it has round pins because the original connector fits.
Trim and seats are still out of Kim so the battery is disconnected. Hopefully over the next few days I'll have everything cleaned up and put back in.
Kims radio never worked. I discovered this was because water in the boot had rusted the coax connector. I've put a spare aerial on (had to snip the coax to get the cable through the rubber grommet under the parcel shelf) but as soon as the battery is reconnected I'll see if it works.
I didn't buy it, I got it from a forum member in Hull when I took him a diesel radiator he needed.
On the unit it says - BMW Professional BM54.
Adrian.

Hello there, I think Canonite is spot on here - they're not that different and I'd give it a try.
The 10a fuse is purely because the amplifier circuitry in these units is much more beefy than the original Rover item.
