Weird leather combo

We were recently at a resort in Sonoma and they used BMW's as shuttles to the golf course.

Afaik, the only iPhone 5 cradle in the US is not the media cradle but a basic phone cradle. Not worth buying.

I m hoping that the next media cradle plays video using full screen.

No way that the damage is anywhere close to $8k unless of course the guy smashed the car into the guardrail ;)
