Yes, the BMW dealer. $190. Expensive but worth the peace of mind to me.

No suction cups are used. I just put a strip of Velcro on the top of the mirror and a corresponding strip on the bottom of the V1. Part of the load is carried by the top of the front of the V1....

I've had my recently purchased iPod crash twice with the Apple cable attached. Never happened with the Y cable. So my choice is album art with the occasional crash or no album art and a stable iPod....

The build sheet that was printed at the factory on 9/29 (at 10:11 am to be precise) at the completion of the car still showed 8TL. The physical copy of that build sheet was included on delivery to me.

No white LEDs for me. It has the new Combox and is also equipped with a feature that causes a silly grin to permeate across my face all day. I can't wait to get her broken in. Loving the adaptive...

You're right, a little aggressive with the box-checking when ordering. If a loaded 35D with a build sheet showing 8TL and 6VC doesn't have them, bad news.

Anyone else with order details?

My 35D is scheduled for week 39 and it shows 6VC and 8TL on the build sheet. Hoping for the new stuff but not confident. I'd delay the build for a couple weeks for the white LEDs but not much longer....
