Can I do an aux input retrofit on an '01 X5?

Can the aux input retrofit be done on a 2001 X5, non nav?

Yes, I believe so. But to do so you need to replace your radio with one from a 2003 or newer. I did this on my 2001 with nav and the Aux works great. Note that you will want to pick up a harness that converts the round style connectors to the flat pin style connectors. http://x5world.net/radio%20module%20...amp%20info.htm

Or you can try products like the Blitzsafe and PIE Aux audio adapters that plug into your CD changer port and convert it to two RCA inputs.

It has to be added (assuming someone hasn't already done so). Here are the installation instructions - http://www.bmwmotorsports.org/crew/u...nstallInst.pdf

You can order the kit from Crevier or Pacific BMW, or pick it up at your local parts counter.
