No it didn't. Your next question will probably be what can I do to get one.
Buy a cable from the dealer, install it behind the dash, reprogram the car to be able to use it.
There are a few videos online and some threads on here about installing it and making it work.
Good luck

The cable cost me $60 OEM from getbmwparts.com, install and coding was maybe another $60. Not bad really considering the iPod integration kit is $700-800 installed. You also get the added benefit that when you install and code the AUX port you also enable MP3 playback.

I have a 05 545i and had the dealer install mine, was only $141.00, which i didn't think was that bad.

I know from reading these boards it's good to call around, prices vary by dealer.

Good luck,

Cable is about $20 on ebay.

Not sure who can code it for you in your area. It's a pretty easy thing to change, just need the right equipment

Here in SoCal I used Solely Bimmer in Mission Viejo to do mine, they do a great job for a reasonable price. They are a bit of a drive for you, but it may be worth it. I definitely do not recommend South Bay Autohaus, they tried really hard to rip me off.
