You purchase the MOST iPod interface from the dealership and do the install YOURSELF. It is extremely easy, the OP posted spot on directions. When I did my install I didn't remove the glove box door as the OP did, I just left it on, my hands are small. Follow his pictures on the the first page but you're simply unscrewing, unplugging, replugging, zip tying. That's it.

The zip ties are the hardest part, a little tedious, also the ones that come with the interface are really stiff and one of mine broke while trying to tighten it, it's not a big deal but just be cautious of that. I found it easier to loosely clip the zip ties on first, THEN insert the interface and tighten down.

I went ahead and purchased the face plate, I like it, a couple people on this discussion talked about drilling holes into it and running the wire through but if you clip on the faceplate first, there is JUST enough room ABOVE it for the wire to fit, even when closed. So that's what I did, no drilling necessary.

It is controlled through the iDrive controller and on the screen, just plug in your iPod and leave it in the glove box. It will also work with an iPhone, the iTunes portion can be controlled through iDrive but if you want to play pandora or youtube etc. you have to disconnect the iPhone first, open up whatever audio app you're trying to use on the phone then plug it back in. Make sure the CD (iPod) choice is selected on the iDrive then wait about 15 seconds and it will override and play the audio. I think I covered everything but let me know if I can be of any more help
thanks for the info, wheres the cheapest place i can purchase the ipod interface?

Tischer is the cheapest dealer to find anything BMW. the only problem is they dont have a phone. So they do everything overemail and its kinda frustrating when your looking for a part that you want right away.

i found another part number for the interface, i dont know which is right
65 41 0 411 033

just found another one
65-11-0-439-425

I don't know where would be cheapest, but the original price is $350, my cousin is a manager at Advantage BMW in Houston so she got me a discount, I paid $315 which I believe is their cost? She said there wasn't much mark up on it.

Looking at my receipt, the part number for the interface is 65-11-0-439-425


and the part number for the face plate is 51-16-7-063-515 (original price $5.10 she sold it to me for $4.33)

Tischer is still cheaper.... And they have free shipping on most items.

280 for that part.

Finally the part came in from ticsher here is the part number 65-11-0-439-425. it was $280 i also ordered the oem floor mats so the shipping for both was free. Install took about 2 min. did not remove the glove door just went strait to the 6 disk changer. turned it on and the unit worked perfect. thanks tischer and everyone for the write up.

The BMW instructions posted in the previous thread are helpful but a little different.

Notablely: 1. No need to disconnect power 2. Fiber Optics are already connected to the X18180 connector 3. No need for software flash

My car 2006 built week 49 Dec '05. Aux input installed after delivery. Software version updated to 21.02 (I think?) when they did steering angle sensor.

Here goes step-by-step (pics to follow). Remove all cd's from changer before beginning.

1. REMOVE GLOVE BOX:

Open glove box and remove the 2 pins holding the box up on each side by pinching the tip with needle nose pliers and pushing outward then pull from the head of the pin.

Close the glove box and remove the two hinge plates on the bottom (2 screws each)

Open box and gentle lift off.

2. REMOVE 6-DISC CHANGER:

Flip down small flap on lower left and right corners to expose torque bolt.

Loose both bolts A LOT (this pulls the retaining tabs on the side in so it will slide out)

Gently slide out 6-Disc Changer.

Disconnect the X18180 Connector (4pin +2 fiber optic)

3. CONNECTING IPOD interface:

Test first by connecting X18180 and the Ipod cable to the interface. Then connect Ipod and then turn on car. It should work. It takes a little bit to load all the music. I then switched back to another source and turned the car off.

4. Sliding Interface into the slot:

Place felt on top and bottom of Interface and slide into place (wires towards the front of the car BUT run the IPod end of the connection cable out next to the interface so you can feed it into the glove box next).

I used the wire ties to secure it into place and shimmed both sides with a small piece of felt. Trim ties.

5. Replace Glove Box:

Set on support bar alighn and close. Make sure no uneven gaps exist between the box and dash.

Replace hinge plates to the bottom.

Test alignment while opening and closing.

Replace pin for the two supports (Strap & Piston)

Feed a small amount of Ipod connector into glove box and check that closeing the box doesn't crimp the wire.


Viola!

Good Luck. Now I'm gonna go play with the functions etc.
Hi all i just got my 650i and it has no cd changer so not sure where the wiring would be for the ipod connector, i have had a good look and have taken the panel out where the changer should be but can't see any cable to attach to. I live on an island called Guernsey just of the French coast but is part of the UK and it costs about $880 on the exchange rate to get mine done through BMW so if i can attach it myself and they just do the I-Drive up date that would save me a whack of cash. In your photos which are great you already had a changer so you had the cable, is my cable somewhere hidden away ?
