Boy and Girls
I have a 2000 528i and I am thinking about replacing the head unit. Have anybody done it? The reason is, I do not have a cd changer so I though, instead of getting a cd changer I'll get a nice head unit with a cd player. Is this a good idea or is it better just to buy a cd changer? Thanx for Your help.....

depeneds on what else you want.
a new HU could play mp3s and hook up to a Mp3 changer or a Hard Disc unit like a muisic keg.

A HU can sometimes be cheaper than a changer. depending on quality and brand..

Yeah, I don't think you want to go there

I am well versed with regard to 12 volt audio and this guy knows much more than myself, and he doesn't encourage it

what that article fails to mention is musical settings. Aftermarket HUs offer much more fine tuning in terms of high, mids, and lows.

No doubt Prez, you can buy a deck for under $250 that not only contains a shelving eq, but parametric as well, some even have Q settings (like 90% of Amereicans know how to do that) . And the article doesn't even go into the accuracy of a the d/a conversion of many aftermarket decks(you can now buy a deck with 24 bit dac for a lot less than in past days)

I was just triying to make the point that it wasn't an easy install, and the factory hu isnt that bad. I have always thought it a bit silly to start making a bunch of audio upgrades and then not upgrade your hu. factory head units don't generally have the power to push an aftermarket speaker all that well and line level converters are for the birds!!!
