Just to note - we are still offering a free installation (with purchase of MediaBridge) for the next 16:9 equipped vehicle that is able to come into our facility.

So do we just place an order on the website or is there a "forum special" through which we can purchase?

Also, do you guys offer the spec.dock option?

We are not fans of the ashtray docks, but they can be purchased elsewhere if still desired.

We are offering the kits at a considerable discount, with free shipping in the US48 on the site.

So what are the "cons" of the docks?
I like the idea of not having to wire a connector to the moveable center armrest compartment and I'd like it to be easy access (rather than stuffing it i the trunk or the glove box)

So the price on your site is the current "discounted" price?

Ok, another question so I can get this thing ordered....
How do I know if I have "analog or Digital" DSP?

I have read threads here and on E46 forum that NO E46 cars have Digital DSP, but at first glance, I sort of assumed that since I have the Harmon Kardon Nav system with the little "enhanced sound" button that it might be "digital DSP"

So do I need that option or NOT?
03 M3 with MK4 Nav and Harmon Kardon... That's what I have...
What do I need?

Aesthetically unpleasing, and premature wear on the dock connector in a moving vehicle from vibration, not to mention a cost of the almost the MediaBridge itself.

Correct.

You are referring to the imaging button from the H/K system. e46 Models were never offered DSP, simply choose the "no DSP" option.

When completed, we will be releasing this as a flash-based upgrade you can then perform on your current MediaBridge unit with a laptop or netbook.

Sounds great Tom! Please post in this thread with this update is out and post vids or pics as well. Cheers.

Thanks for all of the info Tom!

I'm ordering TODAY... (though it looks like I'll have to wait a while since I also want the bluetooth option).

I agree on the price of that dock... it's ridiculous... but since this is my wife's daily, I'm just trying to make it as convenient for her as possible... not sure where else to "store" the iphone for her since she USES the phone quite a bit while she's working (and works from her car)... just thought the dock would be a good option, but I agree with the wear and tear due to the vibration etc.

Any suggestions on mounting location that would be convenient AND look good?
I'm sure I can figure something out... this is not my first rodeo when it comes to this type of install... Just my first dealing with this M3.

iPhone can connect either with the docking cable in the glovebox or sunglass holder - or wirelessly using A2DP if this is a 3GS model.
