I looked on Apple's site and it says you need a 2002 or newer BMW to hook up the Ipod....

there has got to be a way to do it to an older one...anyone know how?

There's an Alpine headunit that plugs directly into an iPod. Navigating your large library on a small headunit is cumbersome, but it works. You can buy a 7 inch, flip screen that you can touch and navigate just like your iPod, but that'll run you about a grand for the screen alone.

Check out alpine.com.

Better be nice or i will tell your mom not to let you have your car for a week!

Anyway, I was looking for a way to hook it up to the factory system, not to purchase a $1000 alpine system...though that might be nicer. I saw some that have an illumination feature that allows it to match your car better. Its hard to find an orange head unit anymore.
