Ok Guys here is the latest on the Audio Upgrade, now this is all fact not conjecture or guesswork or hear say but straight up facts. You E60 E61 Series BMW fitted with the Business Audio and Navigation pack WILL play MP3s from a DVD or CD. You just need the correct software update, however this might not work if all your other software updates have not been done as they are due. This was my scenario. Now I have full functionality of the MP3 section including playlist display in the iDrive screen. You will need to find a good BMW technician and bear in mind he or she may not be at you local main dealer. Now just need to sort speakers and amp and we will be happy.

Nice one Pan man, if you don't mind me asking how much did it cost? It was a complete ball ache when I was searching for upgrades like this a year or so ago. Please let me know how you get on with speakers and amps as I am so needing an audio upgrade!

BTW, you mentioned business navigation etc. I assume your upgrade process would work just as well with professional sat nave etc?

Did you go to a main dealer at your place? Red!

Redadair If you read the post it points out that I was a lot of updates short of current requirements. It should cost no more than an hours labour "PROVIDING ALL YOU OTHER DUE UPDATES HAVE BEEN DONE" Mine had not but they have now. I have to agree with you about the information available, when you get conflicting answers from different dealers it worries me greatly. It was a very helpful chap at a car audio specialist who put me on the trail to begin with as I was all for ripping the lot out and starting again, I of course will be going back to him for the speakers and other items very soon. But for now at least it is livable with and I can listen to what I like.
