1997 BMW 328i 4 door sedan made in June 1997. It has the older business alpine radio that came with the car C33 DIN US. I need a new one since the volume knob and on and off switch totally came apart and now is lost IN the radio. I have heard that I can use the CD43 radio with a CD, which would be great my other had a cassette. Can the CD43 be used without any upgrades and does anyone out there know where I can get a used one? Do I need any different wiring or will it just plug in like the other radio. I remember you could not get a CD /radio back in 1997 and you had to get the CD changer in the truck which I never did. Thanks

For the cost of a new stock radio, I think they are $200... I don't remember if that was the price for a refurbished one or a new one... and it was from one shop here in San Diego... AND it was my dad who talked to the guy, so don't hold me to that number.

I kept my original radio with the cassette (makes it easy to plug my ipod into it, too) and got a CD changer for the trunk (I posted the info about it on here years ago). Are you sure you wouldn't want to do that? I like it because I know that no one is going to break into my car to steal my CD player. :)
