Mein Auto: E39 BMW 528i 2000
Question cassette player head unit dead - need new HU, what are my options?

hi there
528i 2000, stereo with cassette player and DSP and 6 CD changer in the trunk

blew my head unit/cassette player, time to replace it with the new one.

what are my options?

i've, of course, read cn90's thread about istalling buisness CD w/DICE, but that seems have been a while ago (2007?):

i do not own iPad (anyone still does?) but I'd be interested in putting in an in-dash CD player (capable of playing MP3 CDs? maybe), or may be something even more creative?
(GPS, CD changer, glove box? whatever fits in that slot)

btw, I may also replace the MID due to dead pixels (usually one horizontal line).. but mostly looking to find out what's available today to replace the HU.

any recommendations or comments welcome, thanks!
