I am considering putting in an aftermarket changer rather than buying BMW's. I know that the trunk has the mounting bracket and electrical connections already, but how is the changer controlled? Thru the in-dash tape player? Special connection for this?


It's controlled through your existing factory tape player, assuming yours is like mine. Look at the upper right area of the tape player for some toggle buttons. Top one toggles left for FM and right for AM. Bottom one toggles left for Scan and right for Tape/CD. Without a CD changer installed, you punch the "Tape/CD" and it makes your tape player the device that is sending sound to the amp. If you have a CD changer installed, you punch the Tape/CD and it activates the CD player. Or, insert a tape and the tape player will take over. See the collection of owner's manuals that comes with the vehicle. Or, if this is still a prospective rather than existing vehicle, run down to the dealership and stick your nose inside one to see what I'm talking about. Hope this helps.
