E39 Aux (with pics)



I have an 2006 X5 CD player that plays MP3's in my E39. Yesterday I purchased an Aux cable and connected it to the back of the CD player. To connect the Aux cable I had to unplug a jack from the back of the CD player and plug the Aux cable in its place, which makes me wonder: what does the jack I unplugged from the CD player do? As far as I can tell it removing it affected nothing. (See pics.)

Please let me know what you think.

I did the same on my 530. But I seem to remember moving the wires on the existing plug and putting them on the aux plug.

Thank you every one for the helpful feedback.

So I guess it's for the CD changer which my car is wired for but doesn't have it (nor do I want it), so these two cables have no use for me. Here's a picture of the Aux female plug and where I located it. I like it.

It's carbon fiber vinyl wrap. Check the video of how it was done here:
