: Put a deposit on a completely loaded 328 this afternoon
: and picking it up "mid-week"... I'm pretty excited but
: the car did not come with an in dash CD. The dealer said
: he didn't reccommend installing it. Said it would run
: $1400. C'est possible? How hard is it to install the
: factory unit if I buy the part?

: Was the previous post regarding "side mount" changer implying an interior mount of the factory changer?

: Brad

Sounds like he's bullshitting you (for some reason). Even though it's true that buying the in dash unit over the BMW counter will likely run you considerably more $ than had you ordered it with the car, there's no way it should cost $1400, even at inflated BMW parts-dept. prices!! I thought Honda/Acura was out of control with a $500+ (also Alpina) quote over the counter for an OEM style in dash CD (only, no FM--already with the cassette) that was purpose-built for dealer-install a year or so ago on an Integra. Install should be a slam dunk, since they are providing OEM in-dash units now (finally!#?!)...take out the cassette and replace in kind with CD. Right, BMW?
