DIY E46 Aux Bluetooth connection

Hi All

First post, hope you like it

I have been after a way to stream my tunes from iphone to standard business stereo with 6 cd changer. Up tlil now I have been using a jabra SP7000 handfree which has a built in FM transmitter, and ultimately I didnt use it because it needed retuning every few miles when radio stations faded in and out.

I found a few solutions on ebay between 30 for a CD changer to RCA\headphone adapter to 80 for a CD changer to SD card \ USB Stick adapter:

Then I came across this thread on these forums

Thing is I didnt want it physically connected with the cables everywhere, or should I say couldnt be bothered to route the cables neatly. So taking the above idea of coming off the CD changer, I combined it with this little gem

to make a "bluetooth cd changer". Simply soldered the cables as described in the above guide to the RCA inputs of the bluetooth adapter, and a small mod to the box to allow the cable out. Luckily I already had a 10 pin IDE cable so didnt need to cut a 40 pin one up.

Just finished it tonight, will test at weekend. Worst case scenario is I mixed up the pin assignments but ill let you know how well it works!!
