Standard spec states that an IPOD socket is included so Ill just buy a new IPOD. Especially as the additional USB stick option is £250 ish so I may as well just go buy a new IPOD (never bothered before as I have a hardwired in TomTom and a JVC DVD MP3 head unit so could use both together).
Bear in mind though thats just a standard 3.5mm audio input jack, allowing you to route any audio you want into the BMW system from a external audio source, such as a ipod. It does not control the ipod in anyway.
If you want full control of your ipod, with track information on the i-drive screen, you must choose option 6FL, the USB-iPod interface.
