The OEM head unit will play an MP3 CD. Otherwise, you can choose to purchase the OEM BMW AUX connection, install it behind the head unit, and have your IPOD connection routed to your glove box or your center console.

Hmmm, interesting. My '05 plays MP3's on disc. If you're running into head unit issues, you could opt for the aux connection that I spoke of earlier.

Yes! I have the CD changer as well, but I don't use that to play MP3's. Are you sure that the CD that you're using is in mp3 format, not some other code format? The OEM head unit should be able to play MP3 & WMA CD's (..all post 9/04 builds). Take your car to the dealership.
