I can live with a delay until BMW or an aftermarket manufacturer releases a solution, but is it possible or likely (because of the unique characteristics of this setup, e.g. MOST) that this connector will never actually be released?

Any info would be greatly appreciated !
Here is my opinion on this: I give it 6 mos. to a year. Within that time either Dension, BMW or both will have something.

Given my industry knowledge in this area (I´m an industry analyst in addition to writing for BMW publications), I would say my opinion is fairly realitistic: of course I wish the answer were ,,tomorrow`` but...
