Dice and CD-Changer together (EAS chime in!)

Hey Guys,

I'm waiting for the wiring harness for my dice kit to arrive from EAS, but I was thinking.

The CD-changer has to go they say. Because the connectors that normally are in the changer, now have to go to the Dice...

BUT

Isn't there a way to install some kind of a switch. So that when I push the switch button, the connection between the car and the Dice is made, and when I switch it to another possition, the connection between the car and the changer is made...

Like this:




Thanks in advance!

BMWs are not very good at "hot swapping" devices, be prepared for a whole mess of initialization errors if doing this.

You still have the CD player in the dash, not all CD capabilities are lost.
