I just spotted this & thought that someone migt be interested in it:

It allows you to play music stord on a USB stick or SD card through your standard factory fit radio.

Just search for something like:
USB/SD MP3 Player-BMW E46,E38,E39,X3,X5,Z4 40-pin Flat
if this listing is no longer available (if you happen to stumble across this thread a few months down the line.

It delivers CD-quality sound directly into the factory sound system via the CD changer port, without the loss of sound quality that occurs with existing cassette and FM transmitter solutions. Directly control from car stereo panel, user only need a SD card or USB disk, then you enjoy the digital music (MP3/WMA) in your car, Aux input for external audio sources, Auxiliary devices such as MP3 players, Potable DVD players, MiniDisk Player, handheld gaming systems, notebook computers and IPHONE can be added to the OEM radio while delivering optimum sound quality.

I have experience with the DICE unit in an e39, the Dension unit in an e63 & a full aftermarket Pioneer system in an e36 for iPod integration.

The first two allowed the retention of the OEM head unit which is nice. The Dension allowed USB connectivity in addition to the iPod which was better again.

The unit in the original post looks to be cheaper than all my systems, hence my posting it. I'm in no way implying it is better though just bear that in mind when you're weighing up your options. All 3 systems I have in my car work really well & would have no qualms in recommending any of them.
