Here's a pic of the power and AUX connectors in the armrest. Yes, there's an AUX mode on the stereo. Hope that helps.

Where did you get that AUX connector cable? It's so small! Perfect for the E90! How is the sound? By running the audio through the dock connector are the EQ settings ignored? I appreciate all the info!

No, it's best to set your iPod EQ to "flat" and set the EQ on the car stereo. I only use the iPod EQ while listening to headphones or my Bose dock.
