cd skips and gets hot - suggestions?

We just bought our 2003 M3 and are loving it! Found the "business unit" cd player stops working after a few songs and the cd comes out real hot. Plus on any bump in the road it skips. Is there an easy fix for this or should I start looking for a replacement head unit?

I'd want something that looks like it belongs, but i'd like something a bit more modern that shows me what song is playing when the song begins. Any suggestions? I dont believe we have the HK unit as there are no decals that show it. Upgrade suggestions, fixes, etc. welcome. Thanks, Andrew

Mine actually sounds like it is cutting power when hot. Does yours have this issue too?

I'm having the skipping issue as well. Can the unit be found second hand? How hard is it to take out and reinstall? Thanx.
