I heard that you can purchase some convertor and use a Pioneer CD Changer. Is this true? Does it have any advantages?

I've seen an adapter for it that works with the Pioneer CD changer specifically. Saw this at www.crutchfield.com. The adapter also has RCA inputs. The adapter is $100 last time I saw it, some guy on this board actually put it in his M3 too, adapter and Pioneer CD changer which he got from Crutchfield. I remember that he told me that you still retain steering wheel controls such as track advance and volume.

i HIGHLY doubt that....

Yes you can install an after market cd changer, but the only compatible one that I am aware of is the Alpine CHM-S620 CD changer ($249.95). Of course, you have to buy an “Alpine to BMW” CD changer interface ($149.95). I have bought both parts from SoundAdvice store here in FL, as I am awaiting the delivery of my M3 (wk 47). Although I haven’t yet installed the changer, I was assured by SoundAdviace staff that it is compatible and that they will refund money if it isn’t. I have a great confidence in their expertise because they are installing many changers in 3-series BMW’s on daily basis and they are a very reputable high-end electronics store chain. The web address is listed below.

Hope it helps.
