: I just had a Nakamichi in-dash CD changer installed into my 97 540i and from what the dealer told me, it is not that difficult... it will cost you $127.50 for the installation cost (checked w/ pacific bmw and other dealership, they are all the same)... about an hour and half worth of work... and they would not need to tear the car apart... works great and looks even better... would recommend it to anybody who wants it...
Depends on what other options your car has. I assume that you do not have the nav or DSP. I'm not sure of all the combinations, but if you have the DSP and nav, several cables need to be run from the glove to the trunk. This is not trivial. With the standard stereo and no nav, I think the wires only need to be run from the glove to behind the dash.
