I built the harness using the circuit diagram from Mimi74's post on the M6 forum. Do a search or I can post it later if you can't find it.

It is simply 2 1N4004 diodes on each side. About $5 total at Radio Shack.

I coded out the errors. You could use resistors but why bother.

Good luck

Mine is an '07 but it will work on '04-09 automatics I believe. About 10 minutes to install.

Not sure about that price, especially when there is one on sale in Santa Monica for $72k (12k miles):

http://www.cars.com/go/search/detail...nal&listType=1

Or a certified pre-owned in Hollywood for $77k (13k miles), so you get 2 more years of warranty!!!

I have looked at the docking stations in the past, but unfortunately you have to pull the phone out of the case in order to use them. That irritates me, especially since it would be for my Wife's Iphone and we have it pretty well buttoned up in a hard case...having replaced the screen on her 4S already and having to disassemble it from the back to front I make sure we protect it well! Those phones and all the components in side are not repair friendly!!!

If someone is smart they would make a docking cradle and matching case!

This is a real PITA, I'm actually working on my own custom dock. Bit of a science project at the moment.
