Mini Cooper 2006 - USB / Phone Kit

Hi guys.

Does anyone know if there is a USB addon kit that can be used to enable:

* general usb connectivity

* steering wheel phone buttons.

The dealer here in Vancouver says that the 2006's did not come with a USB kit and says that I would need to go to an aftermarket kit.

The previous dealer told me that because the usb kit was not installed by the factory, there is no way to install it now.

My spider sense tells me they are all sacks of ****.

There is a kit demoes on youtube and ebay always seems to have a bunch of these types of things. So I am fairly certain I can find something that fits. However, none of them seem to indicate if the integration includes 'enabling' the sterring wheel phone buttons which would be ideal.

Anyone have any suggestions on options available to me?
