Could someone help. I'm just ordering an 05 model MCS. Read somewhere that the CD players in the new model will also be able to play MP3s! I've ordered the radio boost with single slot CD player. Will I have it or is it going to be a more expensive option??????
I've been reading on this site and keep getting conflicting information. Some say yes some say no!
I asked my dealer who hadn't heard about it, he k-mailed (email to bmw folk) and the technical guys said no, then he was at a course in England for the launch of the convertible and he asked the BMW MINI trainer and he said yes the facelifted models CD Boost will play MP3, even said titles would work.
Saying that it is reported on this site that someone had tried an MP3 disc in a new convertible, which would seem to me the same headunits going into the facelifted hatchback and they said it didn't work? Perhaps they just put old HU into the convertible to get them released?
Think we'll just have to wait and see, I've ordered it with the understanding it will play MP3 so I'll be hoping for a refund on the CD Boost or a new updated HU free when they do (if they do) get MP3 factory CD Boosts working.
I realise this msg is quite confusing, I'm typing fast, hope you get the idea!?
My dealer said that it my cd player would be able to play MP3s, Also on the Mini.com/com website, it also states that the CD player will play MP3s. It says option because you need radio boost. I.e you cant play MP3s from CDs in a changer if you have the standard Wave unit fitted....
My dealer told me that it would play Mp3s.... because I was just going to get the wave unit and then change it, but dont want to tear apart my baby when i get it. So i choose the CD Boost, on the understanding that it would take mp3s... Also in another thread a person with a convertable confirmed that their cd player plays MP3s
I can def. confirm that the CD Boost on my facelift MC (picked up at 2.30pm today - just got home - bl%dy fantastic!!!!!) DOES play MP3 - at the mo can't get the track name / artist to show but hey, so what.
