iPhone 5 Snap-In Adapter

Is part# 84 21 2 338 568 a valid part number for the iphone 5 snap in adapter. I cannot find the part anywhere other than a dealer on eBay and don't know if its legit.

That guy is yet to sell anything on Ebay. And outside of the feedback he received from the same seller 4 times on december 2nd, the account wasn't used since may of 2011. It is most likely a hijacked account.

The pic of the back shows a production date of 11/1/2012, seems like too much detail to be fake. Can a dealer look up the part#?

On the left the ebay version on the right the real version. The left looks edited to me. But right has a bar code number listed under iphone 4. If you scan the bar code pic it shows you the number listed. Nothing comes up if you scan the bar code in the left picture.

Who can do a search to see if this is a real part no? Hope it's real!

I am obviously really bored right now but here is another thing that makes it look fake. Both of these are pictures from his listing. The right shows the lightning adapter centered and a black backing behind it. The left one the lightning adapter is further to the left and the black backing is missing. It is also not sticking out as far.

I see the black on the left. Just need to zoom in a bit more, the lighting is a little different between the pics.

Can anyone find this part number anywhere else?

I think just the mere fact that a google of "84 21 2 338 568" only pulls up his ebay listing and your post says something.

Hey, let us know what happens but I think you're jumping in a bit early on this one if you buy on eBay.

I contacted the seller. He claims the part number is valid in the BMW ATLAS System?

Can any dealers confirm?

It looks like the buyer reviewed this and said it works except for video. I wonder if he just forgot to apply handbrake?
