The main concern I have with the OEM is that I would have to stick my iPhone in the glove box which would be annoying since it's my phone. Plus, I would prefer to use my iPhone to select songs since the interface is much quicker on the phone. So would it just make more sense to use the DICE and get a mount for my phone? I would love something cleaner than a visible mount. For instance, if I could have a AUX jack placed in the sunglasses compartment under my radio and then just stick the iphone in there. That way I could just pull the phone out when I need to use it and also to change my music. Anyone got any suggestions?
BMW iPod kit:

- no current (USB) iPod/iPhone charging support
- limited to 5 playlists
- no text display
- Clickwheel is locked while in use

The DICE Silverline Pro will give you all these features back, and support charging for the entire iPod/iPhone lineup.
