E39 Cassette holder replacement

Hello everyone,

This is my first post on this board. I just bought a 2002 530D, it has a lot of options but for some reason the PO went for a tape player. I already read about the Business CD swap, but found nothing relating to the 6-cassette holder located in the centre console, below the armrest. Is there anything else I can put in there to replace this part ?

Thanks in advance for the info.

Cheers

Manu

Wow thats great, but im not that technical, so i just ordered a new front cupholder from ebay for 10 bucks..

The one i linked to tho is for the center piece where i used to have my cassette holder which i tore out.. it was sticky and gooey so odds are the previous owner used it as a cupholder anyways. except With cassette holder in it.
