2004 745i- can single CD player be accessed?

Is it possible to gain access to the audio outputs from the back of the single CD player and hook into them with a patch cord that would go to a MP3 player? I have the CD changer, never use the single CD player and desperately want to be able to play my MP3 player through the car's stereo.

How difficult would it be to gain access to the toslink terminals then?

Raerae, I like the wheels- easy to clean- but I miss my M-Pars from my 740i Sport. I think they were sportier looking.
