    Hello, Having a small dilemma and i wondered if anyone here has any ideas.
    I have an Apple Ipod which i dearly love. I have made a beautiful job of installing a holdal for it in my car. I currently use a Itrip for my audio, which transmits the audio Via FM signal, the one problem is that the sound quality losses all its body in this process. Does anyone know a way of hard wiring the i pod into my car? i have seen that BMW now have an integration package for their cars, but unfortunatly i'm not in a position to be buying a new 7 series just yet!!!

    Any views would be deeply appreciated.

    thanks all.

    Thats great, will need to replace my head unit but looks exactly how i want it. I was viewing the new Alpine KCA-420i which is a hide away box for the new CDE head units, problem is you have to use the alpine head unit to control the ipod because you loose the functionality on the ipod.
    the system you suggested is just perfect for me, thank you! :clap:

    Unfortunately it doesn't work with the 7 or 5 series...just yet :mad:

    It works with all BMW's will the "old" audio system not the iDrive (3, X5,Z4)
