My 2 favorite brands. Anyway, I just received the quarterly Acura owners magazine and Apple is mentioned numerous times. Page 1 - an ad for the TSX with a familiar looking white cable running out of the car and white headphones in the owners ear. Promoting MP3 player compatibility. It's their 20 year anniversary issue.

Letters section: I applaud Acura for installing an easy link to cell phones (Bluetooth). Is there a plan for a direct link to iPods? In January 2006, Acura will launch the iPod Music Link, a connection device enabling owners to plug directly into the vehicle's audio system and use the controls to play and search for music on their iPods. Available for all 2006 models except RSX. List price $219- takes about an hour to install.
