Aux/USB

I have a 2008 328xi sportswagon. I'm a big music listener when I'm driving, and would like to be able to control my music from my car rather then the iPod. I've seen in other newer BMW's in the center counsel, not only is there a aux port, but there is also a usb. Now I've looked online a little bit and I have seen that on ecs tuning that they make another port that has both an aux and usb outlet. I've seen that there are retrofits, but wasn't too sure on how I felt with them and no one around my area has anything like that installed. Let me know what your thoughts are on the retrofits and the if you know of any solutions. Thanks

I got a good AUX cable and it worked awesome with my windows phone. Now I got an IPhone and music via the AUX port sounds like shit when connected to it. Only option is to get a IPHONE\IPAD adapter cable.

Here is the genuine one
