CD changer

Help guys, those cables with red arrows are cd changer pre-wired connector right? I just opened the trunk and took those pix b/c I want to get an Alpine CD-changer with mp3. What about the blue circled cable, what is that for?

It's been awhile since I installed my changer, but there are two plug to it, and at least one of them is 6-pins, so looks like it. You found these wrapped up in black tape in the factory harness in the left hand side of the trunk, right?

Haven't seen the BNC/coax-like connector, and it isn't like my Nav or radio antenna connector in the trunk, so don't know what it is.

I've had the BMW OEM (but made by Alpine) regular CD changer for about a year now, and it works fine. I want to switch to an MP3 changer, but don't want to spend on the money for it plus an adapter right now.
