I posted on here a couple weeks back about wanting to have my iPod integrated with my MINI Cooper. I am aware of the solution that BMW provides, allowing access through the steering wheel controls, but was less enthusiastic about the fact that you have to make playlists in order to use the controls. That and the $350 part/labour price turned me off. After doing a little research, I decided to simply have BMW install the AUX-In port into my car, which will cost $140 parts/labour. This is much better, and still provides top-notch quality sound. The reason I am so excited it because my best friend and I are going to be doing a lot of traveling beginning this coming Friday (March 10th) in my MINI. Bought a car charger, so now we are all set!
