CD stacker AND aux input possible?
Hi bimmer fans
i have finally purchased a 5 series. The factory did an aux instal and said that if i did this i could not have the cd changer in the glovebox. Is there anyway around this?? I have the ipod hooked up but of course idrive wont get the ipod screen up for probably a couple years so it would be nice to have.
any way out??

So, you're saying the Dealership told you it's either the Ipod or the Disc Changer?
That sounds right because when we usually do an ipod on factoy integration, we dummy the OE cd player to think that the Ipod is the disc changer...
I don't think you can do that (easily--anythings possible with enough money) with the factory head unit. I know that SONY has some kind of source selector but I'm pretty sure that it's only compatible with other SONY products, imagine that.
if you aren't too picky on sound quality there are cd changers produced that transmit a signal to your radio via FM. of course the music will only be 'radio quality,' but since you aren't going to use it forever...maybe. I am personally very picky on my musics quality.
or maybe you can find some kind of adapter that adds an auxilary input to the CD changer input to allow you to keep the CD changer and have an auxilary unit hooked up also.
on a side note, nice car, man. congratulations.
ya i've heard of that mod, where you have to have a burned cd with nothing on it but silence so that you could get the audio from the ipod to the head unit. maybe there is one that can be done without the cd and just trick it the same way but either way you wouldn't be able to use the cd changer at the same time. what i ended up doing is putting in a radio fm modulator but the sound isn't great quality, i could technically use the cd changer if i still had one though
