iSimple iPod adapter?

Does anybody have experience with the iSimple iPod adapter that can be found at Best Buy?

I'm talking about this:

What are your thoughts on it? If you had to do it over, would you buy it again or go for a DICE system? Or something else? I couldn't find anything in the wiki about it.

honestly ... it may be a good product, but have you clicked on the "Does this fit your vehicle" guide? That is the most ridiculous thing I have ever seen. Model year runs from "1" through "18" ... how the hell does that work .... and the only thing that comes up for me is "VW" .......... that alone would be enough for me to say "F best buy" and buy something from one of the sponsors.

And BestBuy wonders why they are not doing so hot .........
The word "there" can appear as a pronoun, as in “over there".

"Their" is a possessive pronoun. In a phrase like “Susan and Bill's car,” it could be used to to make a new phrase: “their car.”

”They're” is a contraction of “they are.”
“They are” should always be able to replace “they're.”

Extra credit: It's "I'm looking for an M3" not "I'm looking for a M3".

I use one in my 2005... it's very simple... displays no info on the head unit.... was very easy to install, just plugged into the CD Changer plug and you set a couple dip switches (outlined in the instructions) and run the cable to the cabin.

The only complaint I have is sometimes it will lose connection with the stereo... not sure where the breakdown happens, but it happens a couple times a week and I just have to wait for it to "reset" and then it's fine again.

Perhaps even look into the USA-Spec PA12-BMW. I've got one and love it, as do a ton of other members on E46Fanatics, BF.c, and even here.

Good luck!
