Just read your post and this is the first I heard about the iPod interface being delayed - is this true and do you have more info?:dunno:B2Blain said:Thank you. I read where it was also a dealer installed item - assuming that it is both. If you do not have installed by the factory the dealer can install it. I was hoping that if was isntalled by the dealer I could have them install the iPod interface. I guess not since the iPod interfaced has been delayed for the 5 and the changer is already installed. I guess I'll live with the changer for a while.
The dealer can install the cd changer for you it will cost 1100 vs. around 600 at the factory. That was the quote I got from a couple of dealers in my area. Just get an ipod use the aux input or wait for the ipod interface. BTW if you get a cd changer and then want to get the ipod interface you will have to take out the changer.B2Blain said:Is the CD changer for the premium sound system installed by the dealer, or the facotry?
Adding devices to MOST based car is not straightforward. The car needs to be programmed to recognize the new device.mach schnell said:You can get a CD changer for $450 if you buy it off the Internet and install it yourself. It was super easy for me in my M3. Steps are:
1) Buy the changer and the proper bracket for your car
2) Put the big plug in the big socket on the changer
3) Put the little plug in the little socket
4) Screw in the changer and bracket
Takes about half an hour.
Does the main cd deck play dvd-r discs that have mp3's burned on it?amg1957 said:I found out after I got the car that my CD changer does not play MP3 files, only the main CD slot does that. It was a waste of money. If I was re-ordering today I would not get the CD changer.
Looks like I'm in business. The wait for my 525xi in Sept/Oct has become more intense!stream said:There's a sticky on this:
