It's not HARD it's just ANOTHER thing to press. Get in car, press garage door opener, put key in slot, Press start button (extra step), Put seatbelt on, put car in reverse, press "accept" disclaimer (extra step), plug in Ipod (extra step) and press play (extra step), then finally roll the car back out of the garage.

I went to Doncaster Bmw this week and got a quote for the Ipod adapter (it lives in the glove box- you can leave the ipod in there and it stays charged and the steering wheel controls can be used for it- nice). Sit down everyone- $808 plus GST = $888.80 installed. When you consider that the new 80Gig ipod costs $450 ish and the cd stacker doesn't work when the ipod is plugged in, the value proposition here is not good. The Aux plug with ipod in cup holder will do me fine.

Just a few more buttons to press....

But back to on topic- I too would love to be able to bypass the lawyer screen.
