I think you can instead of CDC (if you have this option) it must be special adapter, i never try but i think yes

I just came from the dealership with a similar questions for my 2005 745 LI and it turns out that BMW has an adapter (part #: 65110439429) that costs $370 (I saw them on ebay for approx $340) and can be installed to replace the 6-disc changer. However, he said that it only works on cars manufactured after 3/05. Mine was manufactured in 10/04 so this doesn't help me, but hopefully it will help you (or someone else). There are also some aftermarket options like mobridge and specdec, but they seem to have lots of restrictions as well. I am really surprised to find out that the 7 series built in 2004 would not have an aux input or be easily upgradeable. The car drives great, but I can honestly say that I wouldn't have bought this car had I known that I'd be stuck playing CD's. I guess I'll have to consider satellite radio as an alternative.

HTH,
