In the boot you'll find underneath the carpet, a spare wheel well. Containing a spare wheel, a jack, lever tool to remove the bolts and thats all you need. Make sure the handbrake is on and in gear to stop the car moving. Using the jack, you'll notice rubber jacking blocks on th underside of your car.
These points are where to jack the car up. Jack the car up so the its slightly lifted but the wheel is still touching the floor, this will make it easier to undo the wheel nuts. Best way is to put the wheel bolt removal tool and kick it down to "crack them off". Once all bolts loosened continue to jack car up till the wheel is clear off the ground. Remove all loosened bolts and replace wheel. Job done!

Go to an auto parts store and get a Haynes repair manual for your vehicle and look up disassembly of the dash board area. That will be the best solution to getting that radio out.

I have done my other 3-series cars but not yet my '04 325iT, and the procedure is a bit different depending on whether you have an automatic or manual, and depending on whether you have HID headlights, but this should get you headed in the right direction.
It will be really helpful if you have ramps and can run the front end of the car up on the ramps.
First remove the plastic cowling on top that feeds in the air from the grill to the air box. It is held on by four plastic expansion rivets. Then remove the splash guard from beneath the engine.
Hardest part is draining the water without getting it all over the garage floor. You need only drain the radiator, but you will most likely want to drain the engine as well since you will want to replace the coolant. The engine drain plug is on the exhaust manifold side of the block, inconveniently near near one of the oxygen sensors.
Remove the air filter box and the HID igniter (if you have HIDs).
Now start disconnecting water hoses and electrical connectors and the rest should be apparent. Be glad you have a 325 and not a 330 automatic.
Six years is a little young to need to pull the radiator on a 3-series. I'm guessing that either you bumped the front end, or someone put long-life organic acid coolant in your radiator (that stuff destroys BMW cooling systems). BMW branded coolant is very expensive at the dealer but can be purchased on-line for a bit less.
If your coolant temperature sensor is original, try putting a bit of teflon tape around it because the O ring that seals it has shrunk and hardened. It WILL leak after you disturb it. The O-ring is a metric size that is not available in the US unless you are willing to buy 144 O-rings for $80, so you end up buying a new sensor to get the new O-ring, unless you find another way to seal it.
