2008 123d Stereo question

Post by danboy74 » Sun Feb 18, 2018 7:31 pm

Hi guys
Got one burning question though, this is stereo related.

So a single cd slot,no display on stereo unit in the dash, the car has IDrive. subs or speakers under the front seats, The single slot has 1-8 number buttons.but no display (all stereo/radio display is on Idrive Screen)

my issue is this, if the satnav disc is in then you can't play a cd, because obviously the nav disc is in there, someone did say that maybe once the nav disc is loaded then it might be ok to remove and play a cd, however if you are using the sat nav and you remove the disc it kills the satnav and just says re-insert the sat nav disc.

i have checked absolutely everywhere in the car for a cd changer and there 100% isn't one!!!!

so did BMW really make some of these cars that couldn't play a cd whilst the sat nav disc was in??? really!!!!!!!!!

any help would be gratefully received (2008) 123d N47 engine E87

Thanks loads in advance!!

My 2012 Audi A4 s-line was like that.

Bloody awful design!
