In Reply to: ?'s about Nakamichi Glovebox CD changer... posted by Chris on September 25, 1999 at 12:15:00:
I did go round and round until I found out that it is the best Idea to buy BMW/Nakamichi($392 + 100) and put that in. I went to a dealer to do this. I could not do it as I can not take the radio out and plug the wires. It looks straightforward but it took 2 and 1/2 hours for the dealer technician. It sounds awesome, fills the entire glove box and causes problems to shut it. You gotta close and gently but firmely push it. It really sounds very crisp and clear. I beleive a Nakamichi amp would be better but I am not sure I want to mix up with the stock system and lose the ability to control with the stearing wheel.
: For anyone out there who has installed it, how hard is it to install? I've already installed the alarm and clear lenses, how difficult is the the install compared to that?
: Also, how good is its performance?
: Can it be controlled through the stock in-dash CD?
: Im thinking about getting it, but I'm not sure if I should get this donw at the dealer, and I would like to be able to control it with the in-dash CD stock head unit.
: Thanks in advance.
