Alfa 156 Facelift with Bose System

Right, this question has probably been done to death, and for this I am sorry. I have searched but to no avail.
I have a 52 plate 156 with the bose system and this stereo (attached).
Am I right in thinking the only way I can have an aux in would be by getting an after market HU, as there is no adaptor that can plug into the stereo to "trick" it into playing ipod via the CD button?
is there a standard head unit that can be fitted? I wanted to keep the console as original as possible and not ruin it with a Kenwood, Pioneer etc etc and a fascia.
thanks for the hopeful help!

Looks like the one in my car when I bought it. If it is a Blaupunkt, you could have had it with a CD changer. You can therefore, buy a cable from Blaupunkt that connects to the blue mini jack in the back of the stereo and makes the stereo play the first 10 playlists as of they were CDs in an auto changer.

Not the best iPod integration, but it is effective. I have one on an aftermarket Blaupunkt stereo that has the same three mini jacks on the back for steering wheel buttons, amp out and cd in.

Only way to be sure is to pull it out and check it has the mini plug with pins in.
