All change - system broken again!

My own fitted cradle is for a 3GS as this is my business phone and the most used of the two. In the event that your radio does not mute when you get an incoming phone call, then this suggests to me that you might well have vehicle interface challenges? The first IA must be to return the vehicle to your dealer!

Good luck.
I spoke too soon - my vehicle is being female again, iPhone compatability and functionality will no longer work! After fitting a new iPhone 4 cradle at my dealers the original build faults have returned. No iPhone 3 or 4 intragation now!

I now face the reality that this single two month old BMW X3 has spent more time under repair than our previous 11 Honda vehicles over the past 30 years! Well done BMW.

Could I be a victim of poor German design or just inefficient American build standards? Only joking chaps, just trying to make light of a very disappointing customer experience.
