After reading a ton of posts, this seems like a crazy question to ask for a car of this caliber, but does anyone have a single cd changer in the cockpit of the car that didnt require a completely new audio system?

Tragically, I have this option "business cd" or whatever it is called...

But thats OK for me, the music I prefer to listen to anyway is the S62...

Do you mean behind the screen of the 16:9 monitor? Believe only the E46 ever came with this as an option, and that monitor is not compatible from a fitting point of view with the E39.

while i would love to be able to pop a single cd into a cabin side cd player [as opposed to parking, running to the trunk, opening up the cd player, pulling out a tray, loading a cd, putting the carousel back into the player, shutting the trunk, running back to the car...] most of my music is digital and without a cassette player up front, i wouldn't be able to use one of those $14 adapters that plugs into my ipod and runs off the cassette player. yes, i know that i could buy the proper adapter for the ipod, but i'm saving up for ss headers...

No no... no nav/screen, just a flip up cover (which is part of the trim) and under it the sible disk player...

...if you click on ' view my carbon black...' you can see pics...

Single CD w/ Nav requires Aftermarket or some creativity on your part to cut out the existing tape deck and put a CD player in it's place (with no steering wheel controls).

You could try an E46 unit, but from what I've seen / heard they don't fit right from a depth perspective and even if you get it in the bezel doesn't line up with our dashboard...

Honestly, the fact that there isnt even an option for this is repulsive to me. Not that I would get rid of the car mind you....

Can you even buy a single cd for a car anymore?:dunno:

I can't stand how it all has to be ipod. I hate itunes with a passion. That stupid *** format that they have you download so that you can't use it in any other fashion is just ridiculous.

On a side note....I have never seen Carbon Black with the two tone leather interior.....I freakin' like it..and I can't believe it...:cheers:
