The one hitch to my otherwise perfect music world is the inability to easily listen to my iPod in my car, which is a BMW X5 (a/k/a ‘The Raingauge‘). And then I read this annoucement from Apple. I called my local BMW dealer and it’s available ($100 parts and $60 labor); apparently the local dealership has quietly been installing them for a few months now. It only works with 2002 and later models (‘because of some software issues’).
I’ve ordered the parts and they’ll call me when it comes in. I’ll report if there are any problems.
