    Default OEM iPod interface to 2001 BMW 525i

    Gents,

    What is my option(s) to integrate an iPod Video (5th Generation) to a factory installed CD Changer//Head Unit system (Premium package with an upgraded amp. when it was new)?

    From what I read, Denison Icelink only works when the CD Changer is not installed. Is it true?

    Thanks in advance.
    I am sorry, I have no opinion on the matter. I am sure you do. So, don't mind me, I just want to talk audio and pie.

    Check out Blitzsafe or PIE. I use a Blitzsafe adapter for the Audi, utilizing the factory harness via the non-existent trunk CD changer. It gave me two RCA connections which I then use a MC mini-plug adapter into the XM or iPod.

    I would like to imagine that it's an A8...but in reality, it's an A4 :)

    Owning a BMW 525i you should be lookng at a chip, upgraded exhaust and a cold air system. maybe some suspension upgrades and new tires.

    Nice to see someone owning such a fine car Bro...

    My uncle has a 2002 BMW 540i full M package, 6 speed such a nice car.I drove it a few weeks ago and I'm considering picking up another BMW but this time going 5 series as well. I owned a 3 series.

    The new BMW 550i is very nice and powerful. Depending what kind of shape I'm in after all these house upgrades we are doing, I may get a new one or pick up a used 540i or 545i M package 6 speed model.

    How about a pic Bro
