E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

I don't know of any simple adapter that allows you to replace the replace the CD and end up with just an Aux input. You can have an Ipod (Iphone) adapter, they run $350 or so. There is a Dension Gateway that I believe has Aux along with Ipod functionality, it runs $450 or more. The problem is that the CD Changer is connector to the MOST bus which is Fiber Optic signal. So you have to have an Analog to Fiber Optic Digital converter of some type.

To add Aux input to your car and you are good with a DIY you could buy the Aux Input kit from BMW, take apart your center console to connect the wires, then pay the dealer to code it to your car (or learn how to code yourself). From memory the Aux In kit runs around $80, then the dealer programming runs $150 to $250, all depends on your dealer.

Did you ever figure this out? I bought the cable and had a shop take my dash apart and plug in the aux cable in place of the cd changer, but it didn't work. I saw some stuff about having to reprogram or code the computer for it to work but i'm wondering if that was with this cd changer swap thing?

You re replying to post that are 6 years old, most members are still not around. It would be much easier to start your on thread. If you searched the sticky at the top of the page to the DIY section, you will find what you are looking for. The CD changer is only removed to use an IPod to replace the CD player. All of this has to be coded, which is not that hard with the proper tools. The AUX input needs to be coded in the IDrive settings, then the cable needs to be configured. It is not that hard to do, & quite cheap. There is not a way to stream music by way of Bluetooth, with your current configuration. You will need a copy of BMW Standard Tools, using NCSExpert to make the coding change. You will also need a OBD2 cable that is correctly configured to work with the software. All of this can be download online for free. Go to the Coding Forum to find what you need. The coding guys can be quite rude at times if you do not put your time in searching for a solution, so please don't insult them. There is plenty of info on the web to help!

Look at the top of the page in the 1st 5 threads, they will have Sticky on them. They are there to help members with common info that is needed.
