Question can the USB port be retro fit in an M3?

a friend is purchasing a 2010 M3 that doesn't come with a USB port or iPod kit option, could they be retro fit in a 2010 M3? and does a USB port option automatically mean the car has an iPod kit?

and yes i did search the forum but nothing found!

It's not available here and its a lot of money. More than $1000.
The EAS unit would be the most cost effective way but you'll need to get the CD changer programmed.

Let me get this straight... You are swapping out parts designed by some of the top engineers in the world because some guys sponsored by a company told you it's "better??" But when you ask the same guy about tracking, "oh no, I have a kid now" or "I just detailed my car." or "i just got new tires."
