There are few options available: 1. Auxillary-in cables / kits 2. FM transmitters (the sound is not so great) 3. Direct integration to farcory car stereo. Such as GROM Audio Android integration to BMW cars.
You have to take it to the car audio store.
Try the battery.
Dealer....seriously. If not the dealer, an audio shop. I am a car audio person and it is difficult. May void warranty as well.
Connect jumper cables from the positive battery post, on your BMW, to the positive battery post on the charged every. Connect the ground together. Allow the battery to charge for a minimum of 10 minutes.
Which speakers? Kick panels, door or behind seats?
the BMW auxiliary input interface was not available until 2008 models, but this is something you can add to the factory audio system, just purchase the interface and plug it into the external CD changer wiring do a search for BMW Audio Input Interface

The BMW owner manual usually gives you this information, but lacking that here is what mine says: Since my BMW's battery is located in the trunk it is not easily accessible. There is a Positive red (+) terminal under a small plastic cover in the engine compartment. Connect one end of the jumper cable to that terminal. Connect the other end directly to a bolt located on the actual engine. This is the Negative (-). It will be located close to the positive terminal. Connect the jumper cable to the other car making sure to connect positive to positive and negative to negative.
It depends on which if you are looking at what comes standard with the models in the BMW 3 Series or what is possible with upgrades. The standard sound system in all models of the BMW 3 is an AM/FM stereo, CD/MP3 player audio system with Radio Data System and an HD radio (with multicast FM stations). It also includes an auxillary input for personal players and has an anti theft system.
