Need help with the tuner mod on a 2006 750

I am trying to find the am/fm tuner I pulled the drivers side back piller of and it looks nothing like the ones everyone else has done. Is it located in a different place on the 06 or it is change completely ?

Build is 11/05
The aux mod didn't work. I have a facelift car but my hardware revision is to old.

If you get a newer ask unit and retrofit the cable you will have aux? You dont have to also uprgrade the mmi?

For 02-05 7 series yes you'd also have to upgrade mmi, for 2006 7 series no.
