Not sure if you are talking about adding an iPod adaptor after the fact, or the factory iPod. I added the iPod adaptor to my '07 530 having already had an aux jack behind the center console. The iPod adaptor gave me a USB cable in the glovebox that connects directly to the dock connector on my iPod. I can then access the iPod through the radio/iDrive control. It's not as nice as the factory iPod on the newer models (I drove an '09 535 loaner) but it works pretty well imo.
