radio/driver's seat question

Hello, I am new to the forum and to BMWs. I just bought a 2000 328Ci and could use your expertise.

First, I was wondering if BMW makes a CD player with an aux input included. Mine still has a tape deck that is wired for a changer in the back but I would prefer one in the dash. I have searched but only found supplemental aux inputs to be installed separately. I was thinking of throwing in an aftermarket CD player; does that jack up any electronics by doing that?

Also, my driver's side seat has problems moving forward and back at times. Everything else is fine, up/down, lumbar, etc. The dealer said this was a common problem with bimmers and fixed it by gently hitting one of the back cylinders under the seat with a screwdriver. This temporarily fixed it but it goes in and out and I'd like to fix it permanently if it's not too expensive or complicated. Does this sound familiar?

Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

BMW does not make a CD player with aux included that will fit your car. Installing an aftermarket HU is fine and that's what I would do personally, but if you have steering wheel controls or a factory BOSE system (if that was even an option) you will have to buy converters to interface with the amplifiers and SW controls.

Thanks Swift. I have sw controls but no bose system. Do you happen to know if a system interface would fix the sw controls? Not that it's really a big deal anyway I was just wondering. Here is the one I was going to get.
