Re: MY 03 X5 and 5 Series

We would like to clear up any confusion there is on the issue of Navigation System with CD/cassette on the X5 and 5 Series for Model Year '03.

In-dash CD player is standard as of MY '03 on all 5 Series and X5's.

However, when the Navigation System is ordered in either of these vehicles, the in-dash CD player will automatically be replaced with a cassette player. The Navigation System and in-dash CD player cannot be ordered together in either the X5 or 5 Series for MY '03.

If that is the case, why this post on Yahoo (bmwnav)

I just received my 2003 325xiT with the SatNav option. It comes with a DVD Reader for the Nav System in the trunk, although for now they are only supplying a regional CD as before.
There is a single disc music CD player behind the screen of the Nav system. If you want a changer it costs extra. There is space for one underneath the DVD Reader in the trunk.

Hope this helps.

What's the contradiction here? :dunno:
The note above is re: 5er and x5, not the 3er.

Now, if DVD nav equipped cars are being shipped with old CD region discs, well, that would be a problem if the DVD drives don't read CD navmaps.
