Would the Alpine adapter work with my Cd changer and an XM Direct? I have an 04 325cic with factory cd changer. I heard the adapter plugs directly in the changer. Thanks for your help.

No, the factory changer only works with the factory Sirius receiver. It will not work with the Blitzsafe adapter required for XM Direct. You can install an aftermarket CD changer with XM Direct and a Blitzsafe adapter which supports both connections.

The adapter with Cd passthrough should allow you to keep the factory changer with XM direct. I have that one on my X5. Changer soon to be replaced with ice>link.

If you just need the adapter -

Don't know why this website says it won't work with assist, but it does. :dunno:

Or, if you already have the adapter and want to add the passthrough to it, e-mail or call Blitzsafe. They will send you a set of 3 and 6 pin cables that look just like what you pluged the adapter in to. You just pop the cover off the adapter and plug the cables into the board. Plug the new cables in your changer and you're ready to go.
