I have a 2001 325Ci...has old software code on the head unit. I also have an Alpine MP3/CD hooked up and needless to say I do not get the music titles/artist info displayed.
All that said...I understand if I want Sirius I would have to get a newer head unit to a code 50+.
If I did this would it allow me to install Sirius in my '01 and would music title/artist info then come up on my new head unit from my CD/MP3?
If anyone has done this please reply as I could use the help to know how to proceed.

Sirius Yes
Alpine No

Direct XM and Phatbox MP3 player are the only other devices besides the OEM Sirius receiver which display artist/song info on the headunit.
