saildad is an unknown quantity at this point
I just recently purchased a 2003 M5. Does anyone know if there is an easy way to attach the headphone out line for an IPod to the radio. I understand that the radio won't control the IPod like BMW's new option but the FM transmitter option produces really poor sound?

First off, to the forums. Nice car!


You could use a cassette adaptor plugged in to the headphone out, but that leaves cords.

he iTrip from Merlin is not that bad. It doesnt sound as good as the cassette adaptor, but it's much cleaner. I personally hate FM radio, and for a clean look and better sound, you could just disconnect your FM antenna...

Thanks for the info. With the Nav screen shutting on the cassette input I have been uncomfortable with the adaptor. Do you know if there is a "line-in" in the system and if so is it owner accessable?
