OK, thats the same connector on the back of the radio (in the dash) (with flat pins) The white 10 pin connector is connected to back of the HU in the dash

I will see if I can find something like that in the back hatch area

thanks for help !!

If the Fakra plug is in the front then the CD Changer connector should be in the front as well. If possible try chasing the 6 pin connector under the centre console where you plugged the DICE wiring loom into, to the front behind the Head Units in the dash. You may find the 10pin plug wrapped up in some of the anti-rattle wrap on the wiring loom

there are two 6 pin connectors in the front, behind the radio. one was plugged in, one was wrapped up. I tried both of them, but no difference, still no sound.

Any 10 pin white ones like the one in the Fakra plug in the picture? Thats the one you need to find. If you do, remove the blue locking pin on the back of the Fakra, insert the 10pin plug in to the spare place in the Fakra plug, re-insert the blue locking pin and re-insert the Fakra into the radio module. Hopefully this will get you the Audio.

GOT IT! now works! ... just a matter of getting the correct white plug into the back of radio and the corresponding cable connected from the console.

thanks Gadgets !!

I just installed it in my wife's X3 yesterday - no issues. I followed the video tutorial on Youtube: "DICE BMW iPod Kit Installation for X3: 1 of 4 Center Console."

Only change was I drilled a hole in the bin for better routing of the iPod cable, otherwise it would certainly pinch the way they routed it and the cover wouldn't close properly. Pic of mine Attached. The hole looks ragged but that's more due to the flash - you really can't see it in normal lighting.
