it depends. i've forgotten all the model years.
What year is geoffs?
What year is your car?
Whay year is your HU?
geoff's - not sure (won't be buying till i learn more about what/if anything i need to do re: wiring from head unit to changer)
my car - 94 325i convertible.
my car's stock system - CM5901 head unit and corresponding alpine-made oem changer (still need part number).
my car's current system - replaced above head unit with Alpine C43 cassette head unit from 99 M3 coupe. pulled out factory amp and speakers. re-wired speaker wire from head unit wiring harness back to location of former OEM amp. in this spot, installed two line level converters. ran RCAs from converteres back to new Alpine 4x45w amp (mounted in trunk). all nokia OEM speakers replaced from factory 10 speaker system with 4 2 way Infinity reference speakers. Infinity basslink powered sub run from the line outs on the alpine.
whats next - (1) sounds like i have consensus to definitely scrap the existing changer (well, sell on ebay). (2) sounds like there are a few confirmations that the cd changer listed below will be compatible with the C43 head unit. (3) SO the remaining question is will this changer be plug and play or do i have to rewire from the head unit back to the changer?
thanks to all! i promise to write this all up in one concise post on E36 sound systems once i get it figured out!!!

You need 82 11 0 028 760 but you will need also to re-wire the car for it.
