: Just came back from Automotive Entertainment in Santa Monica
: and they just received an adapter that allows you to use an aftermarket (Sony or Alpine) cd changer with the prewiring in all 99 3 series (with I bus). It's also suppose to add features to your headunit (like random search) that is not available normally. I looked at the instructions and it DOES NOT work with vehicles equipped with AI bus. It says it works with any I bus system. The adapter is made by Soundgate (soundgate.com). Price was $150. Seems kinda steep, maybe you could get it someplace else cheaper. In anycase, it's a helluva lot cheaper than buying a OEM BMW changer! Enjoy folks.

So is there a aftermarket changer that any knows of that will work with 96 or newer 3 series?
