if you go aftermarket, then you will need an FM modulator,

but if i get the a compatible aftermarket one...i wouldnt need an FM modulator rite? cuz for my honda...i just need to get the correct alpine changer..and it plug rites into the back of the head unit...for any other changer ie, pioneer...then i would need an FM modulator. i'm wondering if it's the same for the BMW.

correct....you buy this alpine changer and then you buy this "handshake" adapter to make the changer work with the factory hu, it works w/ 96+ but judging by your name you should be all set there
