    Yes, a fanboy question.

    What car do you think is the most Apple-oriented? Simple and easy to integrate Apple products (namely the iPod and iPhone).

    I would think that Volkswagens would do the trick, because isn't Apple corporately related with them or something?

    My 1965 Sunbeam Alpine!

    The Glovebox in the centre has an ipod/phone charging dock.
    Which links through to the radio.

    On the head unit I can scroll through my artists/playlists/songs etc and view the titles etc not just track numbers

    With my iphone I can have the sound from any application on the iphone come through the car radio (youtube)

    If I make a call on the bluetooth headset or if one comes in it dims the level of the music..

    Beat that Volkswagen!

    Any car can be retrofitted with decent iPod integration. Out of the box though, don't BMW do a decent job? But if you're talking overall Apple-car integration in terms of image, etc then probably Alfa Romeo. Look gorgeous, sounds gorgeous but actually not that good in the end and falls apart rather a lot.

    BMW was the first big name to get on board offering iPod incorporation. So from the technical standpoint, BMW.

    As far as looks? Hmmm... VW, Audi or something else small and European.

    Yea the LRX is supposed to have everything controlled with your iPhone.

    I would say that the most apple like brand is Volkswagen.

    Any car?

    Almost every aftermarket car stereo has an iPod jack.

    The thing that would have topped it off would have been if he had one stuck on his forehead, as well :p


    But seriously, he must have cheated and gone on ebay to do that! No-one possibly has that much money to spend on Apple products!

    I think he's asking about a car brand "in spirit".

    I think Volkswagen is a good choice. They're expensive for the hardware, but use them enough, and you will love it. Good marketing, and good brand value.

    The only reason it's hard to give a direct comparison is because the use of most cars is nearly the same, whereas with Apple and Mac OS 10, using a Mac is far different than using a Dell, Acer, HP, etc, with Windows installed.

    BMW is also a good fit.

    Thats true, even if the car just has a tape player radio you can make it play tracks from your iPod without replaing anything, hell, people even done it on 1982 DeLoreans!

    I'll agree with the others that have said VW.

    For some reason every time I see an Apple sticker on a car - it's on a Jetta or a Beetle.

    That is a badass car. Props to you on the integration of iPod/BT/iPhone. Awesome.

    My truck is white. Does that count?

    edit: I totally didn't understand the original question.

    I think Land Rover is making the most headway with their supposed iPhone integration. Jaguar is on its way, but I'd have to say BMW will probably win the bet.
