Did '99s have CDs?

Did any of the '99 models have CD players?

I assume you are referring to the CD changer in the saddlebag? My understanding is that the changer was standard for the 1999 Icon and Custom models, but not included with the "Standard" model LT. My Icon is an early model year 1999 and had the CD changer (I've since removed it).

If you are referring to the player in the stingray, I believe the early model year LTs (certainly the 1999) had a cassette player. In later model years BMW changed to a single CD player in the stingray.

Yep, all the above sounds very accurate.

My '99 here in Australia has the 6 CD changer in the right hand pannier, and the cassette player beneath the stingray, and the huge GPS box in the left hand pannier box. Man they take up space compared to iPods and cigarette packet size GPS units.

Cheers to all

I believe that if you want, you should be able to buy a later system (system 3?) and fit it in place of the cassette system.

Not quite so simple as I found out to my cost. There are two different and incompatible part numbers. One is for the analogue dash models and the other for the digital dash models. Guess how I found out?

Just pussin' through.
