It appears you may not be able to use Aux Audio adapter with it as well...I can not believe BMW offered it as a no cost option and left people out on the cold and did not tell the sales people the downfalls and solutions...poor product info.
I really want to put in an aftermarket head unit, but just hate the way the installation kits put the head unit in the upper half of the opening. I yanked everything out the other day, and found that the area behind the lower half of the opening is just not deep enough for a new head unit. There is a small box of some sort that is attached to the venting behind the radio, not sure what it is, but if it can't be moved, I'll just get a new factory radio. But $800 is pretty steep.
