Default New S90 CD Player

My '18 T6 Inscription didn't come with a CD player and I'm told by the dealer that they can't add one. Has anyone installed (or had one installed) the OEM CD player? The factory job that mounts in the center console storage compartment?
I'd like to have more options than the Aux jack for a real CD player. I like Apple Carplay and use it often but still want to have a real CD player.

There is literally no reason to have a CD player anymore. Tell me why you think otherwise and I will be happy to explain to you why you are wrong

So you would put $$$ into a "name" in-car audio system and then feed it with ultra compressed garbage source material from a phone or streaming service?

While I accept the fact that CD's are going the way of the Dodo bird, I have tried to play ripped CD books on disk and have tried organizing the files such that they should play sequentially but no matter how I organize them, they will not play properly in the my V90. It is very frustrating and I completely understand why the original poster wants a CD player in the car. Any car costing what these cost should include a player if the customer wants one. I've tried to find a CD player that is Bluetooth compatible, but the only ones I've seen state they are not for use in cars. If anyone knows a secret to ripping a book CD to a USB drive and can have it play properly in order without having to look and select the next chapter on the screen, I'd love to hear the way to make this work. I've been successful in playing music ripped from my CD's, but the book disks don't seem to work as expected. Maybe it's me, but I've tried several times to get audio books to play only to get frustrated and having to try to pick the next file to play in sequence is proving to elude me. The time it takes to rip book disks to a USB drive only to have it not play just exacerbates the frustration. It isn't safe to try to select files while driving on the touch screen. Is there anyone here that have solved this?

Agree. Have had a CD player in my last 3 cars and I carried the same Tool Opiate CD as the only CD hoping they'd release a new one.

The quality on my 9,032 songs on my phone is good enough. And it means I don't have to carry 1,000 CDs. If I really wanted quality, I'd put a turntable in the car.
