I have an '08 E60 with the Aux port in the rear of the arm rest(convenient for nothing) but purchased an Aluratek USB receiver that mates with my IPhone. It is a little larger than a postage stamp and about 1/8" in thickness. I placed a velcro strip on it to hold it in only complaints are that it doesn't automatically resync with the IPhone and charging is via a micro-USB charge only. My work around for charging has been to plug in my cell phone charger with a USB slot right next to it. Good news is that the Aluratek was about $30 at Best Buy and the sound is great. Works much better than the direct connect to the headphone jack.
