How can i tell? - AUX compatability

Hello Fanatics,

I so tired of listening to the boring radio and i don't know if my stock radio is compatible with having an AUX input installed. My car is 4dr 323i production date 11/1999 and i have the business Cd unit. Any one can tell me if it will support this and a blue tooth without changing the main head unit.

Any help is appreciated.

Dice? Yes.
OEM Auxiliary? No.
OEM Bluetooth? I doubt it. Parrot is cheaper and easier to install, anyway... works just as well.

I have an '01 330xi with a Business CD Radio with a date of 09/02 on it. I bought an AUX input and it doesn' seem to work. Should it work in that radio or not. The documentation says production of 09/02 and after and that radio fits that description. I could use an answer if anyone has one.

Just wondering why go with parrot vs a dice mediabridge, the mediabridge is bluetooth ready as well and has the ipod and aux inputs, and a simple enough install for anyone to do

If it has a "mode" button, it's AUX compatible. If it only has a "CD" button, it's not. If you check the P/N, the latest revision (from 05 or 06) will support MP3 CDs.
