If you do....did you get the proper Ipod cable? I'm trying to track one down and get it before I have to send my car to the states. My local dealership (Carrs of Bury St. Edmunds) tells me it will be 2 weeks before they can "order" one. God only knows how long before I get it in my hands. I'd hate to think that BMW released the industry first feature in their cars and failed to get the one and only cable to make it work into the dealerships before the cars started to roll off the factory floor.
If you can't get the BMW cable, then I believe this will probably do the same thing:

You would also have to buy a 3.5mm male to male phono lead and a usb lead.
