Question Best IPOD system for an 04'?

I'm thinking of pulling my 6 disc CD changer and installing a dice system. I've read so many threads on theses my heads starting to spin, most of them older threads. I was wondering if the units have changed... I was looking at the DICE Silverline DUO-100-BMW $130 on Amazon.
My concerns are:
Installation... are these things plug and play into my old disc changer connections or am I going to have to splice into my harness, I hate splicing!
Power Drain... read some horror stories about the line staying hot a draining the batteries.
Options... is there a better unit out there?

Thanks for any help or opinions...

Option.Scala g4 and Pandora. Simple,no wires and it is expandable to include a passenger and or other riders. Pull your CD changer and use the extra space. Just another choice.

Courage doesn't always roar. Sometimes it is the quiet voice at the end of the day saying " I'll try again tomorrow".

Yes it is. Don't tell that too loud, riding without full protection is a very touchy subject on here.

Re: Best IPOD system for an 04'?

I have a DICE but it drains the battery even if not changing an ipod. Its ok but I would look at other alternatives if I had to do it again.

Just Go
