Unhappy

Have an opportunity to buy a plug and play changer for my 95 318i from Global AutoSport - it's a modified Pioneer unit for my vehicle. Technical specs from the website are provided below:

From what I have been able to tell about my car and its audio set-up, this changer seems somewhat generic to really work in my car. Techincally, what do you think? The price is very good, and so naturally I'm a little skeptical. Thanks in advance...

I am not sure about your particular model, however I had a RF modulated changer in a '96 Civic I had years ago and the sound qulity kind of sucked compared to CD's. Basically it makes you tune to a radio station to pick up the signal coming from the changer. It sounded more like radio quality compared to CD quality to me. It was a convenient install though. If it is possible, I would recommend a changer that is hard wired into your HU.

I agree with the others, a big thumbs down on RF CD systems. The quality is just not very good. Take the time to put in a hard wired CD system, in the long run you will be much happier.
