I did it in the sunglass bin too and just tucked the aux cable away when I didn't need it. Worked well imo.

This is my install with Dynavin.
Hope you can find the aux and the USB input.

My Ride: 2004 330Ci Conv.
Here is my AUX port installed at the switch center. This was my first mod on my 330Ci just after I bought it. Built the cable myself with directions from this site. I now have a DICE iPod connection as well so I have everything I want for my audio system: FM, AM, CD, AUX & iPod!!!

@dslboomer: does the USB connection come with the Dynavin unit or is that a separate install you did? I would be interested in something like that.

I got that cable from Jeff @ Dynavin solutions.

I had a Dice unit too, but it broke after a year. I did complete audio system overhaul (nothing stock except wiring) after that.

Mine is in the exact same spot. It's super clean. I use this Aux cable to keep things looking fresh too

I routed mine to the euro tray so no cable is out in the open.
