Yes, my previous E46 330 and my current M roadster all have this problem, and after I changed the deck this still happening, so I guess it's not deck's problem.
BTW I've been driven many different cars and BMWs are the only cars have this problem.

This fixed mine

It's a hack, but it works.

Add an aux jack for your mp3 player.

Have you had your head unit replaced yet? I got mine replaced under warranty over this, there was a TSB for it on www.alldata.com

That TSB does not apply to Z-series cars. And it's not for skipping. It's for intermittent CD ejection failure.

But what the heck, give it a try.

I had the skipping and the ejection problem... thought they had replaced it for the skipping issue, must have been for the ejection problem instead... My bad!

Jon, I've never been able to figure out what the picture is trying to show me. It seems like the screw is still going to hold the player rigid to the dash. If this is the case, then how is the foam wedgie actually dampening movement of the CD player to prevent skipping? What am I missing here?

My E46's original deck (I believe these are still CD43 like the Z radios, but with the proprietary instead of DIN face) had the skipping and eject problems simultaneously. I read someplace that this only affects Blaupunkt-made CD43s, not Alpine-made ones (figures...).
