e46 iPhone integration HELP

Hey all,

Was wondering if anyone could help me out with this. My 02 325xi does not have an AUX port and I was looking to install one. I found a couple Kenwood Decks that have it but i'm worried if i do get it installed, will i lose the steering wheel controls?

If so, does it cost extra to get it re-installed?

Also, would it be a better buy for the kenwood deck, along with the install for the steering, or to buy an USA Spec iPod Adapter for the car? It's about 150-250 dollars from Bovarian Autosport.

Thanks again

go to and get the aux input there.. yes u dont get to use your steering wheel buttons anymore to control the radio but with an aux input u can virtually plug in anything that can deliver audio..for example if someone has a blackberry or iphone they can plug the audio jack in and VOILA

If You have a CD Changer in the trunk, there is a way to connect the AUX cable instead of a CD Changer. It's not expensive method and provides great quality sound!
