It should take about 20 minutes. It's SUPER easy. BTW, you don't have HK sound, that's for 3 series. Check http://www.bmwcdchanger.com/ for info as well as http://www.realoem.com for installation kit part numbers. Get the install kit from a BMW dealer for under $20, I got a CD changer used from a roadfly.org member for $209 delivered. If you buy used, confirm it's the new part number, 82 11 0 028 760ChinuSFO said:I have a 2002 530i. I do not have a CD changer in the car. I have a "Business CD" player. It plays 1 CD at a time. How do I go about installing a CD changer by myself. What model and make of changer should it be. Where do I install it in the car and is it already factory prewired to the Harmon Kardon system? How long will it take you think? Thanks for the help
If you have DSP I believe you also need another (optic?) cable. The car is prewired, you can plug it in in like a minute, the bracket kit is just to hold it down. Your dash CD will still work fine too.
