X5 3.0i Head Unit Question

I have a X5 3.0i that I want to keep the factory head unit, and put in a Auxiliary jack to plug in my mp3 player so I can play it through the factory speakers. Does anyone have a wiring diagram to make this? I have seen it floating around for about $32.00. But Im a die hard to do it myself.

Thanks

I've seen some wireless ones that are relatively cheap and are universal for any car that has an FM radio.

CarPc

Im actually installing a CarPC, and I built it myself. I own a computer store. Being a vetran in this field for the last 14 years. This little baby will have internet inside the car, mp3 player, dvd player, phone, Nav etc... (Another distraction lololol!) I will post pictures when I am done. I found out that the CD Changer that I THOUGHT I had, is not a changer, but a CD STORAGE. GOD! I feel like a idiot! 4 year grad of MIT and didnt know what a CD Changer looks like. Anyways, Is there a aux cable schematics to making your own cable? So I can have a audio input?

you can use the existing cable meant for the factory cd changer, you'll just have to figure out how to fool the radio into thinking there is a changer plugged in and figure out which wires are the audio input. i'll look around and see if i can find a pin-out for the cable.

no, sorry i didnt find anything. it may be something one would have to get from a repair facility.
