You should complain, that's not right. I hear/see that the official ipod/usb (6FL option like) retrofit kit is available now for some specs, see other thread:

I dearly want that - the Dension GW500 sounds great, but it's so expensive and so much hassle to do if you haven't got a CD changer already. And in the UK where I am the dealers costs are substantially more - I worked out for GW500 it would cost me 850 (~$1700) with cost of fit, dealer supplied CDC, coding and GW500 itself !!!

A little fiddling with the key got it open twice, but since then I can't open it to get to the cable. You can imagine my satisfaction with this.
have you any further experience on how often this 'several seconds' delay occurs, everytime you get in car??
