I've done it on other cars with adapters like this:

I wonder if there's a kit for the 3 series that just isn't tested on the 1 series but will work. hmmmm. I'm not paying £500 just for steering controls! Would rather buy a better headunit instead.
That's an iPod interface. Pretty sure there is one available for the 1 Series. Quick search find this: http://www.amazon.co.uk/Connects2-ICONN ... B005JF0SFI.
Have a look on Dynamic Sounds/Car Audio Security/Sound Evo/Car Audio Direct, etc.
The Connets2 one from Amazon is very good but it only charges the iPhone/iPad. No other functions are available other than volume control through the steering wheel controls.
