Installing E46 Aux Input in E85

I purchased an E46 aux input to install in my 03 Z4, which I have seen others install. The car had a factory ipod adapter when purchased. I want to leave it in place to charge my daughters ipod. The E46 adapter has a 10 pin connector and the ipod connector has a 12 pin connector, which matches the back of the stereo. I removed the pins from the 10 pin connector, and installed them in the 12 pin connector where they appeared to go. It looked as if they would either intertwine with the ipod adapter or 2 wires would go in the same connectors as the ipod connector, depending on where you put the 10 pin connector. Bottom line, not working. Can someone who has installed this tell me the pin numbers and wiring colors that the E46 aux. input should match up to on the Z4? Thanks
