Mein Auto: 2004 X3
6 CD player

Hey folks, a friend is selling her BMW 6 CD player that she removed from her 2006 X3. Apparently her 2009 is not wired for it and she is looking to get rid of it. I went by the dealer and they indicated that my 2004 X3 is wired. How easy to install? Haven't seen the unit yet, is it magazine style? Presume the player gets mounted in the back under (or over) the nav unit? Any help would be appreciated.

Usual place for the changer is in the centre console.

as you will need some of the trim pieces (no. 14 on the diagram) to finish the installation.

I do believe though that in the US there may be the ability to mount it in the luggage compartment where the NAV goes, but in the UK it isn't wired there.
