DICE ipod adapter

Has anyone installed a DICE ipod adapter in an M coupe? If so, how has it worked and was the intallation difficult. Are their connections in the trunk (where a CD changer would be) or do you have to interface directly into the radio? I am trying to figure the best way to ipod my new M coupe (getting it in january). If anyone has experience with the BMW integration system or others I would appreciate your input.

Thanks
Geoff

Tom@EAS did mine. Works well and someone with install experience probably could handle it. I would contact Tom@EAS.

You'll see the battery cover and fender liners need to be peeled back. The ends of the rear panel are held in by 2 plastic screws/nuts and the top portion is simply peeled back.

I found it easier to reach my hand underneath the back portion and push outwards to remove the back portion from the rail. it's simply a channel the panel slides into and is pretty flexible.

There are a couple of DIY threads posted for this install over on z4um.com that should be helpful:
