Not the way the E46 can.
You could use an FM modulator for stock radios.
If you have an aftermarket deck with line inputs, you can use a headphone jack to hook it to the Ipod... That's what I would do since FM modulation severely degrades the audio clarity. there's a reudction in dynamic range, sample rate (it's actually analog), etc.
I see that you have an alpine deck with Ai-Net stuff. You can buy This and hook the unit to that instead of your Cd changer (if you have one) and then hook the Cd changer to that unit, and then you have 2 line-inputs and some more other fancy shit. (dual CD changers!)
If you dont have an alpine Cd changer, then you can go the even cheeper route and get the Ai-net to RCA line inputs for half as much
you plug the heaphone plug into the headphone jack, then you put the tape in the tape deck, the tape plays, and when you turn on your ipod and play musci, you hear it out of the car speakers, i've been using one for three years in my mom's car, first with my sony walkman, then i started using it for my rio mp3 player, the quality is acctually really good, they cost i don't know like a few bucks at walmart, but you have to control the ipod normally, unlike the e46 thing where you can change songs and stuff with the wheel mounted controls, but hey it's easy for me i have the buttons memorized on my mp3 player, so i can control it just fine
I do not have an auxilary input on my head unit so i am currently running a FM mod to my 20Gig Jukebox (while i save for a new head unit). Sound is good some days and bad some days. Auxilary input is the way to go but if you have to then go with the fm mod there are a few adjustments to get rid of most of the hum on the fm mod and also in the player itself. Another thing, recording at a higher bit rate is important when using in a vehicle because you hear the full array of sound. I haven't used a cd in over a year.
