Replacement of Nakamichi glove box CD changer

Contributed by: Scotty

Replacement of Nakamichi glove box CD changer
Well here is the full info for my resolution to my broken Nakamichi, hope its useful for others.

I'd was sorely tempted by an iPod and iceLink solution (iPod $399-ish for 40GB,
$200 for iceLink). www.densionusa.com. Nice solution. Expensive, but nice. Very nice. And it appeals to me as an Apple user.

(The Ipod-your-BMW unit won't work for me since I have Nav.)

I personally dislike the trunk changer ($300-ish for Alpine unit). I dislike not being able to insert a CD while on the road. And also, as a bit of a audio snob, I do find the trunk units have inferior sound compared to the Nakamichi glove box unit.

My favorite (and very efficient) dealer didn't know what to do initially. I am 9 months out of factory warranty and he somewhat awkwardly quoted $500 for a new Nakamichi. (Vaheh @ Crevier was $440).
My service guy seemed to appreciate that $500 for a CD replacement was steep; he said he'd look into repair costs and get back to me. He did indeed call back within 2 hours and explained that BMW would do a 'core exchange'.

For $130 and return of my broken changer, they would supply a remanufactured unit, with 2 year warranty. BMW had 'plenty of stock' (i.e. lots of returned units that had been remanufactured). Part no. is 82-11-0-006-800.

So for $130 I am back to enjoying excellent sounds and can change CDs while on the road !
