Adding aux input to radio...

Hi. First, I have searched through forums and web regarding how to add a simple 1/4 jack aux audio input to the business cd radio. I have found so much content that my head is spinning. I've found how to do it for 6 series, for X3's, for E36's, all kinds of opinions and facts. Too much info.

So, rather than going crazy I'll give it a shot and ask straight out.
I want to connect an iPod SHUFFLE (not ipod mini) so all I need is a 1/4" input jack.

Questions:

- Some people say that the E46 business cd already comes with an input jack in the back of the radio, so all I need to do is run male-male wire. True?

- Others say I need a BMW adapter (Part No. 82 11 0 149 390) True?

- Any links on how to remove the radio?


Thanks!

Jus posted this in another fourm but this looks like the place to ask. I have a 05' 330 just plugged in the Aux in and some engine noise can be heard when nothing is plugged in as well as when a DVD player is plugged in. Has anyone had any issues with the AUX in?
