Picked up 320D M Sport today but....

My bloody snap in adapter gives me nothing but charge for the iPhone.

I assume perhaps I haven't order some special pack hence not getting the iPod out?

Maybe wrong cradle (84.21-2 218 390-04)?

If I connect via straight USB cable it works fine - with album art etc.

When I dock the phone via the cradle I get power to the phone but the car doesn't see it at all.

iPhone 4s. I can see it's clearly the perfect shape but not sure literally how to get it in. Looks like I'm gonna break the 30pin connector if I try to clip it in at an angle

Was talking with a BMW salesguy from one of the big dealers, and from his experience talking with customers, the issue with the case on the phone is the main reason most don't bother with a cradle. Many have expressed it is too much bother to get in and out every trip.

Maybe I should just take the cradle out of the car instead and use that as a case

That was the reason I ditched my case!

Ended up with a slightly scratch phone come recycle time and it did not affect valuation! Result.

I drop my phone all the time though because I'm a div. If it were not for this magical case made of mithril then my phone would be buggered by now

Maybe I'll get a slide-in wallet or something that I can easily slip it in and out of in the car

What part number cradle did you get? I'm still not sure which is the correct one.

The one ending in 308 is the media cradle for the 4/4S

Does the media cradle give you video playback or any other cool features above just plugging in the USB cable?

Depends what options you've got mostly. The cradle is there for convenience, cooling and using the car's antenna for better reception and stuff
