2009 BMW 750i: $90K and No iPod Connection?
April 27, 2009
I'm not addicted to my iPod. In fact, I hardly use it compared to most people. But when I get into a brand-new, fully redesigned luxury car with a $90,000 sticker price, I expect a real connection.
Because of the way our 750i is configured (e.g. light on options) it doesn't have a proper iPod port. Instead, there's nothing but an "aux" jack, so you're left sifting through songs by using the iPod itself as it flops aimlessly atop the console cover.
Not a big deal really, but it's a silly feature to leave on the options list given the overall complexity and feature content of the audio system itself.
