X5 CD Player For Aux Input

I found an in-dash CD player from a 2006 X5 that I could put in my 02 540. My brother doesn't think it'll work because it's "too new"...whatever that means? Lol. I know that I need a Sept 02 player for aux input, but would an 2006 one be too newer to work? I mean by is would the software work? I'm confident it will because it's the same in-dash unit design as mine and 2006 was the last year of that body style X5. But I'd figure might as well check in with you guys first just to be sure. Better to be safe than regretful lol

It will work. I'm running E53 X5 in-dash CD's in my E39's. With the 05 & 06 X5 units, you'll get ability to play MP3's on CD in addition to the Aux function. Some have satelite radio capability also.

Hmm...quick question though. The unit came from a car with non-DSP system. My car has DSP. So would it still work?

Yes, one of mine has DSP and CD player is independent of DSP.
