Smile 2005 330i HK Business CD Plays MP3 Files

I have a 2005 330i Sedan build date of 09/04, no nav, Premium & Sport Package.

The following info may be old news to some of you so I apologize in advance if this is "review"...

I just got the car about 3 weeks ago. My HK Business CD playes MP3 files off a CD-R perfectly. The head unit sees each folder as a seperate "disc", just like the Alpine CHA-S634 CD changer sees regular CDs, and each track then appears within those folders. Example: TR04-10 (Folder 4, Track 10)

Navigation is not too bad if you have the disc organized by folder rather than just 200 MP3 files thrown on the disc in the root. Track access was just as speedy as a regular CD. Sound quality is perfect - I ripped at 192k Stereo 44.1 and the files sound great! I put 7 CDs worth of music on the disc.

Anyway, the dealer had no clue this was even possible. They were totally surprised - they should pay US to teach THEM! Now if BMW could just release a software or head unit upgrade that displays the MP3 tags that would be the ultimate...Later all!!
