I finally found my aux in tucked behind the glove compartment.
I am a fan of the aux in rather than the integrated system because I like to have full control from the Iphone. I add and delete music everyday on my full 32gb iphone 4 and I am sadly not organized in the way i store my music. I don't even have some titles as the music is downloaded in other manners...ha ha.
I didn't want to keep the glove box open and the wires hanging all over the place so i decided to do some research.
I purchased a BELKIN BLUETOOTH MUSIC RECEIVER bundle at Fry's for $30.00 USD.
It comes with the bluetooth unit (about 1in. by 1in. and half an inch thick), wall power cord, aux cord, aux-av (for the home bose system) and a usb wall charger with cable. (good amount of stuff and cheap)
I then purchased a car charger that would support the unit at Fry's for $0.99 USD.
I velcroed the unit on the glove box wall next to the aux in, curled the aux cord (planning to get a really short one), and hid the charger wire below the glove box panel and connected it to the aux power in the foot well.
The phone connects instantly when I get into the car and the quality is flawless.

I have done the same, works through the aux in glove box, power comes from the 12v aux below the glove box in the form of a 5v charger, hiden the cables in the under plastics and the belkin dongle is with the aux in for the comand, sounds good and allows any device with bluetooth to be connected to transmit music, i use my iphone/ipad and ipod touch, the ipad is great when you want to watch movies obviously not on the move!
Here is the link just need a 5v charger with correct connector
