For the iPod hookup I use a brand called USA Spec, but DICE makes a better product. You cannot hook up the iPod if you have a cd changer though. The cable in the back is designed for a cd changer, but you can buy an accessory that makes your car think that you have cd changer, but it's really an iPod.

It's a BMW not a DELL!

never heard of that.

What is cool to me is that our cars originally cost the first owners some serious coin:

I'm pretty sure there was not one in my 328. Cannot check now because I no longer have it.

Here is what I have discovered...

1)There is a rechargeable flashlight in the glove compartment
2)The lights flash once when locking the car and twice when unlocking
3)The passenger side mirror tips down in reverse only when the adjustment switch is on the left
4)The car goes into some kind of sleep mode after about fifteen minutes
5)The clown nose under the mirror is the adjuster for night time diving
6)If you hold the arrow button on the car remote all the windows will open
7)The trunk mat is reversible
8)If you flick the turn signal on with the ignition off that turn signal stays on
9)The battery is conveniently located in the trunk
10)When the windshield wipers are on high speed, they slow down when stopped
11)The seat belt clip actually contracts in an accident
12)There is a cd changer/ iPod hookup connector attached to the amp in the rear of the car
13)If you push the sliding cover of the rear ashtray all the way back, the ashtray itself lifts up to make removal easier
14)The xenon headlight adjust themselves every time you start the car
15)The ignition recharges the batteries in the keyless entry remote
16)Apparently there is more than 1 radio antenna in the car and the radio actually selects which one to use based on signal quality
17)The external trunk release only works when all the doors are open
18)The hazard button flashes with the actual hazards
19)The computer beeps at you when the temperature hits 3 degrees Celsius
20)The OBC has a lot of hidden diagnostic features
21)The coin organizer is spring loaded so that you cannot break it if you lower the compartment above it onto it
22)The absolute coolest thing about my car is that logo on the hood that says BMW

That's all I've discovered for now....
Well with 17... lets say 17a, the fuel filler door will open only if the doors are unlocked!

If you unlock the car and don't open any doors for a minute, the car locks again automatically.

This has all been posted before, but ill play along!

You can turn the radio on without the keys in the car, just press the volume knob it will play for about 20 min and shut itself off.
Good for when your washing the car.

you need the BMW Business CD53 Alpine Radio (2003 thru 2006) to harness this power.

the 1998 - 2001 Blaupunk Business CD53 radios don't do that.
