I want to replace the factory tape with a factory CD player that I can get very cheap. I looked into removing the factory tape and its looks very complicated. Does anyone have any step-by-step directions or pictures of how to remove this radio?

Please let me know..

Have you considered just fitting a BMW CD stacker in your trunk and wiring it back ?

Is that an option for you instead of ripping out halsf the dash ?
I have a stacker in my car.Its mounted in the left hand side of the trunk.
