All the pictures posted around here of the navigation head units have a casette/tape player. Does BMW make a navigation head unit with a CD player instead of tape deck? If so, got part numbers?

With the 04s, the default changed from a cassette deck to a CD player behind the Nav screen; I think the first cars to get this were the 04 coupes back in Marchish of 03, so it may also have been a mid-year change on 03 sedans.

You can still get a cassette deck, but now you have to request it.

You can get tape, mini disc (Europe only, I think) or CD these days. Your dealer can look up / order the part for you.

Any update on this? Do X5's have a CD player behind the Nav yet?? Why would BMW let the 3 seris have it and not the X5?

CD Player is now standard. I believe you can get a cassette player (or in Europe, a MiniDisc player) if you specificlaly request it.

AND it seems to play CD-R's and CD-RW's fine! :)

But not MP3s :thumbdwn:
it seems BMW is behind the curve on these things - in-dash changers, MP3 CDs, etc

Steven - You are saying it's std in the X5 now? Or did you mean 3 seris?

I meant 3 Series. I'm afraid I have no info on the X5 series.
