OK, I am confused. I have an '00 323i wagon, and the simple question is: is there ANY way, either through the dealer or aftermarket car stereo shop to hardwire an iPod to the existing factory Business Radio? Sorry if the answer is somewhere in here....can't find it!

yes there is a lot of ways to connect your i_pod, i think the best is

but if you want to hide your i-pod in your glove box you will have to drill a hole and use some thing like that

Math:

Many thanks. Interestingly, I checked with my dealer today, and he says that the BMW unit WILL work in the 2000 model. I questioned him on this, and he said that the techs said it would. Interesting. In any event the price is $300 (parts & labor). I am still debating, as the iTrip I purchased for $30 over the weekend is working pretty well for around the town driving. I don't normally use the BMW for trips, as it is hard to fit a wife and two boys in the 3 series; better in the Explorer. So that would mean another $200-300 to wire the Ford. Hmmmmm. maybe I'll stick with the iTrip and XM. Not being a screaming audiophile, I have a higher tolerance for not quite digital quality.

In any event, MANY, many thanks for all of this info!
