FM is shit. It's dynamic range is nowhere near CD quality.
It's probably best to get a head unit with line inputs and put a headphone jack in the glove compartment..l You'd have to controll the IPod as usual, but it'd sound much nicer.
I guess if you REALLY wanted to you could butcher up a wrecked E46, take it's steering wheel and head unit and use it's guts to run the IPod and get the audio signal directed into where the CD changer inputs go... :lol: Big mess though.
If you have an aftermarket headunit with an auxilary input, you can hook your ipod up to it. For about $20 parts and labor, I got BestBuy to run a wire from the headunit to my center console. I drop my ipod into the cupholder, plug it in, and I'm good to go.
