I'd go with the Alpine CHA-S634 6 disc changer, Blitzsafe
BMW/ALP DMXV.1 96, and the Alpine KCA-130B. (I don't think it will work
with DSP though)
I got mine from Crutchfield and it worked great. I got the bracket to
hold the changer from ebay for like $25 brand new and the alpine is a
direct bolt in.
The nice thing is it's a 6 CD changer that works with your built in
head unit and it also plays MP3s! So you can get 100+ tracks per CD vs
20-25 on a normal CD.
I keep my tracks limited to fewer than 99 since the head unit will only
display 2 digits.
One weird thing I found is that you need to make sure you have a
regular CD in slot 1. For some reason if mine has an MP3 in slot 1 it
takes forever to start playing the music (like 20 minutes!) If there
is a regular CD in slot 1 and the rest are MP3s it plays fine. It may
just be my CD changer (I need to work with Crutchfield on it ) but I
You could use the BMW changer. They are available from Pacific BMW at
better than normal dealer prices. If you are a member of BMW CCA many
dealers will offer discounts.
