I am clueless why folks would need a CD changer when they have an iPOD anyway. And certainly the in dash CD will play CD's/MP3's.
Chuck, Could you confirm to me that after install of the iPod adapter you still have use of the in dash CD player. The reason I ask is that I have seen an online version of the ipod adapter instruction manual which lists the iDrive menu for non-7 series cars with iDrive. That menu does not show the individual CD player as an option. It shows FM, AM, SAT, CD (sub menues MP3 1 through MP3 6 all of which are iPod related).

I am scheduled to have the iPod installed tomorrow. I can certainly live without the silly CD changer, but not my in dash player.
