Research the "tuner mod"....if my car didn't already have an aux input, I would certainly consider doing it to my car. There are other options out there but not sure on sound quality...use the search feature and and you can find more info.

From your question what are your intensions: are you looking for just audio playback or are you looking to integrate the OS like on the Audi's?

If you are looking for part A, then any aux input will work, but your device will still be the control and the car will be the output. if you are looking to just plug your android device and let the car be the control then I am afraid that parts right now is none functional. There are some individuals on the web that has integrate a PC into the 7series but again it will be a lot of R&D-ing. So as of right no the only option is for aux input thru the aux port, tuner mod or the most expensive mobridge MOST bus interface.
hope this helps
