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.
