Installing Aux Cable to Cassette Player

Hi Guys

I need some help with an aux cable I would like to install in my car. I have a 2002 318ti which comes with a bmw business cassette player with the cd changer in the boot.

I bought a auxiliary port and cable on ebay that is compatable for the bmw deck. Can someone please explain to me how to install this thing because apparently it isnt a simple "plug in and work" situation. attached are pix of the cable I bought with the deck i have.

My understanding is that the easiest way is the get a headunit with a CD frontloader as it has aux "enabled"
I suppose in theory you could cut the input wires from the CD shuttle and replace with this, but I'm not sure exactly how it will work.
