I called the local BMW service guy with whom I had placed my order for the iPod connector (the device that will let me listen to my iPod in my BMW and control it using the car controls). The service guy said that they are having trouble getting the part in because there so many on backorder around the country. He claims that there are over 800 of the connectors on backorder nationwide. Guess I’ll have to be patient.
