As I understand it, it plugs into the radio in the back of the car, and has a 1/8" mini plug stereo input on the other end, with a mounting plate. Mounts anywhere you choose.cramer said:Are you talking about the Ipod connection port that gets mounted on the side of the console/dash?
That's kind of it. It's a different P/N for cars with NAV, because the NAV radio is in the trunk and it connects back there, so the connector pictured may not be the same.cramer said:

No, they didn't - it was strictly pre-wiring.I know this thread is old news, but...
I understand the car needs to be new enough to be pre-wired for this or have the proper head unit to be more precise (built after 9/02 IIRC).
And I know there's a $30-40 BMW part to wire the glove box with an AUX port.
My question is...did BMW actually go ahead and install the AUX port in the glovebox in the factory on any of the cars?
My car is in the shop until Mon. or Tues. so I can't eyeball my own car, but was wondering if I should be ordering the cable or wait until I can see if my glovebox has the AUX port.
FYI build date 4/03.
I think that the cassette adapter has a very good sound quality. I can't tell the difference between it and the radio.The sound is very clear, although the volume is somewhat low. It is far superior to an FM modulator or cassette adaptor as it is a direct line into the head unit.
