New member with head unit question

I just purchased an 08 328i sedan (non Nav car) and I'm unable to find an aux hook up. The head unit lists AUX as one of the inputs but there is no plug in the center console compartment. There's an empty hole there where it looks like the previous owner may have removed something, but as far as I can tell there is nothing in there. I pulled the HU out to see if I could trace a wire back but didn't find anything. If there really is no AUX line hooked up to this HU is there a way to order just that part? Or what about switching out this HU to one that has USB or even Bluetooth? Is that even an option without Nav? Thanks for your help.

I have heard others have problems breaking the whole USB/aux adapter and pushing it into the arm rest. If you investigate, you will probably have to open your center console, last time I went into the console I had to open it from behind and there are clips that are easy to break. So find a DIY and pay close attention, those clips were a real B!tch!!! and really require a special tool. But you can do it!!!!
