CD Changer isn't a problem, as it requires the optiplexer tool which performs the job correctly. this also updates the VO to reflect the change permanently, just as if the dealership was coding for you.
We have the correct equipment and experience to perform this job for you.
If you would like to purchase a cable and tackle the job yourself, please make sure you take the necessary precautions (and procedures) in doing so. BMW developer software was meant for those with armed with experience.
