I have just got a 2004 E46 320d Touring and am getting towards installing a parrot handsfree kit, but before that I will be installing a cradle which allows the iphone to be charged while sitting in the cradle. I dont want to use the cigarette lighter socket as I want it to be permant and all hidden behind the dash. What im looking to do is to get on of these : http://bit.ly/6LXskd and cut off the plug. Thus leaving the 2 female sockets on it. Where is the best place the take a 12V feed from behind the dash to be able to wire this in? I might put an inline switch in so that I can decide when to charge the phone in the charger and when not to, so as to not knacker the phone battery. I already have the AUX kit installed so that will be fed into the cradle as well.
Ill prob do a write up on it for other people.
So any ideas on the best place the get a 12v feed from to put the cradle on the passenger console side next the the gear stick.
