At this point, I dont mind paying $50 bucks for the retrofit cable, as long as I know that I wont have any issues with ground loop on the OEM cable. Can someone verify that if I have something plugged into the car cigarette lighter charger, and also the aux, that there will not be engine whine or ground loop noise with the OEM cabl?
Bought the BMW OEM cable, still has the EXACT same issue. I will try to remove the cigaretter lighter and ground it at the same location as the radio today and see if that changes things. But fark, i wasted $50 bucks on that cable and it was just as good as my DIY.
