Are You Sirius? :)

If you get a satellite reciever one option is to use an FM modulator unit. Then you can set an FM channel on your stock unit without having to re-wire anything. I may do this on my 328IS. My first Bimmer too!

Just go the cheap way and get one of those tapes that connects the mp3 player to the tape deck. They sell them at target
