It's not something you can fit as an after market item it's a factory installed system.

Even second hand the blue and me modules can be silly expensive and you'd need to change the cars wiring loom to fit the system then hook it up to computers to let the car know it's there.

Far better off looking at getting a parrot Bluetooth hands free kit installed

What happens if you press the cd button twice with no disc in, does aux appear on the display?

I agree with AndyRKett that Blue&Me would be impractical to fit. If you just want Bluetooth - I had a Parrot CK3100 installed on a previous car that didn't come with it as standard, it worked well

Yes, aux appears but I can't seem to work out where the input is for it?

That's great thank you for your help! Is that just for Bluetooth or aux aswell?

You can buy a cheap lead, 3.5mm plug for your phone/ipod 5 that plugs into the rear of the radio(need to remove the radio), but you have no control over the source.

This MAYBE the correct plug, a picture of your radio would help

If aux appears on the radio that cable may work - although I was under the impression that radios after mid-2010 didn't accept this cable. You could always send it back on eBay though if it doesn't work (check their returns policy!).

If the "aux" comes up there must be some way of feeding in a signal may require a different lead or "system "?

Well so I was lead to believe - but I know my mid-2010 radio wouldn't play ball, and I'm sure I read on here it was in 2010 the change happened. To be sure I guess the only thing is to pick up a cable and have a go!
