    Now if only I can figure out how to get an ipod adapter for my Alpine head unit that will work with the iphone and not require me to lose my Sirius radio tuner.
    Nice.

    Funny you should mention the adaptor problem, I tackled that in my Z71 Suburban a few months ago:

    I remember seeing that thread being very glad at the time I had the AUX jack in my '07 Suburban. That has sat in reserve, used mostly for towing duty since the fall when I "inherited" my husband's M5. I had initially wanted to do something like what you did, but because my Alpine HU is a few years old, it only has one connection for an ai net device. In this case, my Sirius radio tuner. Since I dont want to lose that my only option was to get a source switch like th JL audio Cleansweep. Its not cheap though so I think I'm just going to replace the HU with a newer Alpine that will allow me to use the same tuner for Sirius but let me have an ipod adapter as well. There is a new unit the CDA-105 coming out at the end of the month that looks good.

    ^Yamaha blue. Yeah I do, got a few awaiting. If you send me your complete phone its $105 which inlcudes shipping back to you (assuming US). Not bad considering colorwarepc charges $150.

    If you send me the housing alone...its cheaper.

    lol skip the paint and powder coat? dont think that will work seeing as powder coating involves heating the case up to like 2-3X its limit.
