USA-Spec PA12-BMW on BMW E46 330i Sedan

Testing the USA-Spec PA12-BMW after plugging back my radio. As you see here I stashed my iPod Touch beneath the Console tray where it is out of sight and out of the way. My Alpine BMW Business CD53 Radio also has BMW Factory Sirius and MP3 Data Functionality. This is on a 07/2001 330i Sedan with a 02/2006-production date Alpine BMW Business CD53 installed.
