    Default CD changer into CD30

    Getting well hacked off is this a possible or is it better to do an ipod mod?

    Neither option is particularly straight forward.

    For a CD Multi-changer, youwould have to change the head unit to a CDC40 and possibly a matching display (GID).

    Or you could partially re-wire / modify your head unit to take an aux-in connection.

    Cheapest and simplest option is to get a hardwired FM transmitter but these have limited quality...or for better solution, try researching a device like a Denison ICE link.

    Or for best solution throw it into the back of a cupboard and buy an aftermarket headunit :

    Hmmmm,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,, bit limited that, OK I think next option is a CD70 / CID upgrade then, better start saving but as this is a long term car I reckon it would be worth doing.

    Will buying a £350 - £400 CD70+CID give you what you want.... you posted if it was possible to fit a CD multi-changer into a CD30 and the consensus is no.... assuming you want a greater selection of music available in your car... the CD70 will only help in that it plays MP3's... but for £30 - £40 you could get a CD30 MP3... also... the CD70 is not a multi-disk player and unless you manage to get a CD70 that was made after 2007 then it won't have an Aux in either (although there is a kit to fix this)... For what you would pay for a CD70 you could get a really good after-market CD/MP3/DVD player with iPod connectivity....
    Don't get me wrong... I upgraded from CD30 to CD70 and love it... but I didn't do it for the same (apparent) reason that you seem to be doing it... just take a moment to think about cost and what you want out of your head unit...

    t won't give me the CD changer aspect I am after but will give me Nav, so that with a bluetooth uplink and I should get the ipod connectivity as well. Expensive hassle but for a long term car probably about worth it?
