| OK. I found that too.
You might read thru this
It is a google translation of a German site so my understanding is not going to be perfect.
Perfectly clear, right?
Only vehicles with N46 engine
Female terminal branch separated from the A6.
Branch A8 using butt connectors (1) and
Shrink tubing (2) at the open end of the cable
A6 connect feeder.
Black, 58-pin plug X60002 from the
DME control unit unlock and remove.
Branch A7, einpinen to PIN 4 of plug X60002.
Assemble and plug X60002 on DMESteuergerät
It looks like there is a slightly different retrofit wiring kit for the N46 that has a pin connector that fits into fits into that socket. The blue wire is extended (using a butt connector) by a brown wire.
In the posts down the page it looks like someone just tapped into the existing wire on pin #4 of x60002 to reuse the connector. I think he just clipped it.
Also note, that the link and the picture you posted are mirrored because one depicts the socket side and the other the plug side.
(Disclaimer time: I'm not a mechanic and I haven't done this before. I don't speak German. I take no responsibility for anything at any time.)
