Aux input?? Part numbers

I need to know what the compatible part numbers are for the aux input for my 2005 645ci. I've seen like 5 different part numbers, but am not sure which numbers work for the 645.

Here you go, this is the OEM Aux kit. It runs $75, see the attached PDF. 65 12 0 153 502

The OEM kit has a plug with the Aux input attached, but you pull out the pins from the plastic Molex plug, discard that, and put just the pins in the back of the plug in your head unit. So the better option is to get just the pins and wires from someone like seller roskinc on ebay. No affiliation to me, never bought from him, but another member recommended his kit in the DIY section. The other option is to go to Radio Shack, buy your own pins, add the wires and solder on a headphone cable, and you have your kit. Here is a picture and link to the OEM kit:

The AUX input will not give pure stereo, but will allow you to input sound from your phone. The IPOD adapter that replaces the CD player would be a better choice.

Oh. Didn't know that I would have to disconnect the plug. Great info, thanks.

Here is a thread that details the procedure. Don't forget that it has to be coded afterwards to activate, do you have NSC expert? Dealer can do it but will charge probably an hour or more. Takes 5 minutes in actual time!

I actually had it remotely coded in at the end of last summer, just never had time to buy and install the cable before the winter hit. So I should be all set in the coding arena. Thanks for the instructions, I ordered the part from roskinc on eBay last night.

Yes, that is what I do also, for longer road trips we load up a couple of CD's with MP3's. I have also done the same with a DVD, depends on if I need to use the NAV or not.

I would think the quality on the Aux In will be as good as the MP3 CD/DVD if you have them encoded at a high bit rate and a decent device. I don't know how to compare the quality of BMW's Digital To Analog converter compared to one in an Iphone or Samsung smart phone. But either way, both have to take your MP3, process it through the DAC, then amplify the analog output into your speakers. Roseng is smarter on sound systems than the average bear, he would know better than I!

I tend to use Lossless codecs such as FLAC on my phone, so the files will be bigger but higher quality, so when I use Aux In (in other instances, not in my BMW since I don't have it) the sound is very good.

Ok cool. I have tons of music on my iPhone and was thinking about the BMW aux install. Though I do like scrolling through music on iDrive and using the knob and steering wheel.. But music and NAVI sounds cool too... Hard choice ...

Just installed the $23 aux cord from roskinc, and am loving it so far. I just need to find a place to mount it. I was thinking about in the glove compartment, but can't find a good spot in there. Don't really want to mount it in a visible spot. Any suggestions??

Go cordless, that would be easiest.

Get yourself a Kinivio bluetooth reciever, stuff that and the cord somewhere behind the dash. You could easily run the Kinivio power cord out and plug it into the lighter receptacle in the passenger footwell. I have this receiver in my company car, it is the only one I have found that delivers sound quality that is not degraded by the bluetooth connection.

Your phone will be connected to the Kinivio via bluetooth, it reestablishes everytime you get in the car. The Kinivio is hardwired via headphone wire to your Aux Input. Voila, you are free of having to plug that bad boy in all the time.

Good suggestion, never knew that there was a lighter receptacle in the passenger footwell.

It is located on the passenger side console area, near where you put your foot.
