Adding ipod/usb to a car with only Aux

Hello, I am a new member here and just picked up my 2008 135i a few months ago. I got it used and it doesn't have the ipod/usb connection but only has an aux port.
I would like to be able to control the music on my iphone from the "BMW professional" headunit. My father has a 2008 mini cooper Clubman S with that feature and I love it.

I asked the dealer who I bought the car from if I could add the USB to my car and he said that it would be very expensive.
I would only want to do it with factory parts.

How can I get the capability to select songs from my iphone through my car's stereo like I can on the mini cooper that uses what I think is called the "Y-cable"?
