Hey guys and gals

I just got my 2000 528i, the previous owner had a cd changer, but removed it. Now i want to put cd changer in the car, but do not feel like overpaying for original; bmw cd changer. What would you recommend? I want something that is ust plug and play no adpaters etc.

what does the plug look like? I have one that I dont use that could sell you but I'm not sure if the plug is compatable with a 2000 528. If you can take a pic of it then I should be able to tell.

Thats what i thought, but I wasnt sure. If its a round plug, mine should work.

if its the stock headunit with the OEM wiring, most likely no aftermarket cd changers will work. You may have luck with Alpine CD Changers since alot of OEM bmw audio products are from Alpine.

I believe all of the E39s used the Alpine I-bus changer. Also you might find OEM BMW CD changer on eurobuyer.com for very reasonable $395. More Q and A on this subject is available at :
