What is this cable???

I found this cable in my glovebox after having owned my 2008 E90 328i without iDrive for about a year now. I have an aux input in my armrest but no usb port. I have checked in the trunk and the glovebox but dont see anywhere where this cable might go, i was thinking it was for a CD changer but I cant find info on it anywhere, thanks for the help

That looks like a USB extension cable, like this one:

That is a USB extension cable if you had the USB port in your center console. Dont worry about it.

haha alright thanks, that makes sense. I just fit one end in to the other and it fits perfect so that makes sense its an extension. Thought it was to something in the car, thanks alot for the responses

You can't fit many thumb drives into the console USB port directly, so the extension allows you to use them.
