Sounds expensive, probably cheaper to find a 2nd hand one. Thanks for your reply.

Shouldnt be that expensive; if you cant do it yourself, or dont want to invest in a cable to DIY, its worth getting a quote from a BMW independent garage. Its a five minute job.

If you get second hand, there is no guarantee it'll come coded for aux anyway, so you might be back to square one with a lighter wallet.

Where abouts are you - someone local on here might do it for you.
E87 118d, stock, plus PDC control unit drain, Parrot, debadged, Mothercare baby shades (but no babies), and occassionally a good layer of wax. Instantly forgettable, and thats the way I like it.

Eden have Autologic so should be fine with your coding.
