iPhone 4 Video out

I have a new M3 with the 6NR BMW apps option and iPhone 4 cradle.
BMW apps and BMW Plugin work but I cant seem to get Video playback to work.
I know that the vehicle has to be stationary but anything else I may not be doing?
Anyone get it to work (in US)?

Thanks.

From dealer. Parts guy assures me it is the latest and correct model although they admit its the first car with bmw apps they've seen. See attached photos. Is it not the correct one?

Ok, Ive got it figured out and will post so that maybe it helps someone else who is as confused as I was.
The deal seems to be that you have to choose the 'PlugIn' (iPhone) via the CD/Multimedia menu in order to get an option to view video. Going through 'Connected Drive' menu also gives the option of selecting Plugin but that shows the ipod interface without the video option. Seems confusing but at least it works for me now.

How is the quality of the video?
How is the aspect ratio?
Are you using the native video app, or a third party?
Do you know if third party apps with video play work as well?
I'd hate to have to encode all my videos to get this to work.
Where did you get the part? third party or through BMW? how much?

The aspect ratio looks closer to 4:3 than 16:9 on the limited testing I did. I was able to play video and podcasts that were transfered to the phone via itunes but not third party video. Hopefully this will be forthcoming. I will play around with it a bit more today and report back with anything else I notice.

Do you need the cradle for BMW apps to work or does it work just with the iPod cord? Also is there room in the cradle for a iPhone with a case or just enough room for the phone by itself?

I know for a fact that pandora works without the cradle.
I tried it in my car, and pandora works.
Obviously regular mp3s from your iphone work as well.

Currently using the the BMW OEM 6NR option, the cradle is required for PlugIn and Video. The rest of the currently available apps will work with the USB cord. Evidently, the retrofitters also have a hack for getting the two cradle apps to work with the USB cord.
