iPOD Interface

Got an iPod interface untit fitted to the wife's E46 325 convertible by Halfords. The interface unit is made by: www.connects2.com
They have a really good website and also do an interface kit for the E90. The fitting for the E46 took 1 hour and it uses the connection for the CD changer. The steering wheel controls work also and the head unit now "sees" the iPod as the CD changer. You can scroll through 6 playlists or click thru the entire iPod. It also charges the iPod and comes with a cradle, although I got it set up so the iPod sits inside the centre armrest as you do not need to touch the iPod once connected.
The cost 50 which included installation!
Not sure yet on the cost for an E90...guess it also depends on whether you want to fit it yourself or have a spotty kid from Halfords do it! There were no issues fitting it to the E46.
The Connects2 units can be ordered from Halfords as Connects2 only sell to suppliers. It is worth having a look at their website though for more info if you are interested.

Sounds good, but I'm not convinced I would let halfords touch the MOST fibre optics in me e90.

Yes, I don't blame you especially as you have idrive they could really stuff things up! I am going to get it done on my E90, only cause I do not have idrive and so it should be straightforward...I hope.
