Help with 2008 X3 OEM Navigation Install

Hello All ,
I am an New BMW Owner. Picked up a 2008 X3 W/Manual Transmission ( The Dream) except the car although Pre-wired for Phone etc did not come equipped with Bluetooth or Nav so i purchased a TCU unit and OEM nav Display unit . The TCU was fairly easy and straight forward.
The Navigation Unit however is giving me a Headache.
It Fits like a glove in the space previously occupied by the Dash tray but i can't seem to find a connector for it. The connectors behind the radio look full and i am wondering if i am missing something or if i need an adapter.
