Question Can I change the Radio&Tape player in 1997 BMW 528i to a new Muti-Media Center?

Hi, how are you? I am a student who just brought a used 1997 BMW 528i. I noticed that this car only has a Radio&Tape player. There are many cool Muti-Media Center on eBay. They have CD, MP3, DVD, GPS, USB&SD import, and 7” touch screen. For example, this following link:

7" 2 Din Car DVD Player GPS TV TFT LCD Monitor RDS iPOD - eBay (item 260380536040 end time Mar-30-09 04:50:31 PDT)

But I also realized that these players are smaller than the original R&T player. Not so punctilious measure is that the R&T player is 12” long and 4-5” height. And the M-M Centers are usually 7” long and 4” height. Anyway, they are not in the same size.

Also I consider they might not use the same kind of cables. For instance, I saw the photos in the following link:

The cable looks quite different. So it also concerns me.

I want to know if anyone has changed the R&T player to a newer player or these kinds of M-M center. If yes, would you please share some experience with me? Thank you so much!
