    I am after some advice please. I recently bought a 530d (04). I started having odd electrical issues that resulted in warning lights on the console.

    Having just bought the car I do not intend to bring it out until the spring after sorting out a few issues.

    2010 E91 - I've got the USB socket in the glove box (not the music one in the centre console). The question is can I charge my phone and mp3 from it?
