Hey everyone,

Just got a 2010 3 touring that i will be picking up this weekend and am really excited about! the thing i want to do as of now is to hook up a usb port so i can charge and play my ipod in the car.

first question: i noticed there was an accessory port in the arm rest compartment that reads 12V120W on it. i'm assuming this the same as a 12V cigarette lighter socket; am i correct? (i also read on an online manual that it holds its charge and can drain the battery after excessive abuse)

next: if this port in the arm rest is a standard 12V socket, has anyone tried hooking up a usb connector to it having the bose speakers? how is the quality your sound and which usb adapter did you purchase? i'm not looking to spend much (under 20). some sources i read online from users report static and/or unclear playback from their mp3 so that's why i wanted to get some info from those of you who have a usb plug and can offer me any recommendations based on your experience.

thanks in advance:walkman:

Why don't you just use the audio jack next to the port in the arm rest?
