You don't want to mess with trying to install an aftermarket radio in a BMW, believe me Geoff. For what you want, this is a much better solution.

Do you have a CD player? The board can tap off the output from that. Otherwise, it would have to be off of the radio, which means dismantling it from the dash, but it can be done.

I got a Jabra freeway hands free kit. Allows me to stream music and calls through the radio speakers as it has a fm transmitter built in.

very easy solution
