^^^ this.

The USB just provides power for the unit so as long as you have a working AUX port, that device should work just fine.

If you are handy I would just do an oil change now. The BMW oil service intervals are entirely too long for any oil. I personally prefer Mobil 1 but any approved oil will work.

Thanks for making it apparent you have no idea what you are talking about as this will make it easier for people to ignore your posts with false information.

I've seen it many time before on these forums but I'm sure someone would gladly trade you for their standard rocker panels. I actually purchased standard rockers myself to get rid of the RBs.
