Mein Auto: 335i Coupe'
Regarding the Ipod issue - I think the problem is that the charging pins on the BMW connector are different than the charging ports on the Ipod. This issue actually deals with Iphones. When Apple went from Iphone 3g to Iphone 3gs they changed the pin configuration by moving the location of the charging pins. I needed to buy an aftermarket adapter to use my Iphone 3gs in my previous 335. The issue went away when I got my M3 as BMW works closely with Apple and therefore changed the pin configuration to match the new configuration used on the Iphone 3gs and now the Iphone 4. Since it seems you have older Ipods, they would have the same pin configuration as the older Iphone so you're not getting a charge and running your Ipod batteries to nil. I still have the adapter, if you want it, PM me.

Nice color by the way!
