Mein Auto: 2007 X5 4.8i
non-USB stereo retrofit

My '07 e70 X5 came without the USB plug in the center armrest. I've been told you can't just add one, that the software for it can't be coded in, it can only be done at the dealership.

This leads me to ask, where exactly does that code live (on what piece of hardware), and if I were to find that part at a wrecker, would I be able to swap those parts?

I know there are other ways to get a USB/ipod hooked up, but I'm trying to get it done as stock as possible.
