So, I will visit the dealer to address this issue; possibly remove the kit altogether.
The slow response may be due to the old iPod, I just don't know. I tried a nano that responded quicker, but it also had considerably less content.

The iPod kit is listed at $319.95 (I got a 10% discount) and the labor was $152/hour for 3.0 hours. I ended paying about $750.00...$1,200.00 is too expensive.

Since my e92 was reprogrammed after the OEM iPod kit was installed, would I need to install a CD changer and have the car reprogrammed prior to installing the mObridge kit?
I think you already know that, to use the OEM iPod kit, the CD Changer may no longer be available as the kit takes over.

Any info is appreciated! Thanks!
You will need to be programmed for a changer, the activation codes are different. The mObridge will replace the CD Changer (if equipped).
