Help - USB/audio interface retrofit

Hello
I am in process of buying a certified 2010 X5 and it many options except the USB/audio interface in the center console. It has premium sound with DVD changes. The glove box has USB input i guess it will not play the songs from iphone or USB stick

I know this topic has been discussed here and there but wanted to know the latest on it.

Should I get the combox Instead ? I am going to talk to Patryk at bimmertech (he seems to be nice guy)

X5 has 41k, prem pkg, prem sound, sports pkg, adaptive drive, comfort access, HUD, tech pkg, cold pkg, rear climate

Thanks for your suggestions and help

2010 X5 has Mulf/TCU, there is no combox. You can use the existing hardware iyou have it to run the USB HSD cable to the center console .That will give you 6FL. Add it to your FA and code your CIC.

I am sorry it was not clear to me. Are you saying that I need only USB HSD cable and reprogramming of CIC?
Also please clarify what is HSD cable and where I can get. Also what is FA? Thank you so much

Go straight for 6nr. I went for 6 fl too but soon before long you're going to want the combox. Bimmertech is ok
As long as you don't run into issues, I had to resort to buying from bimmer retrofit to get last mile fixes as bimmertech stopped responding.
