It's not as nice as the factory iPod on the newer models (I drove an '09 535 loaner) but it works pretty well imo.
A car I am considering has the iPod option, and what I'm curious about is what that option includes. Just a jack to plug the iPod in, or some sort of cable adaptors / connectors as well? What I'm trying to do is come up with a list of things to either request as part of the purchase, or use as a chit to bring the purchase price down.

Again, thanks for the help.
