iPhone 4 Media Snap In Adapters finally here - But,

It seems that this adapter is finally posted for sale. However, when you click on the title it show the 84212199390 number which is for the music option. How to be sure that the offered item is the 84212199392 number that is for the media?

On Canadian web site, I do not see this new offer.

Could you tell me guys, what happens if you click on the "Buy Now" button on this US site? No effect when I click on it from here in Canada.

Thanks for trying WTT.

Maybe they are in process of setting it up...

Lets see if anyone learns anything else.

Perhaps unsurprisingly, this isn't available on the UK website where I think they update content biannually!

You are saying that you have selected this adapter from this web site:
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...31&startrow=26

Uneder:
IPHONEADAPTER* $156.00
+
Option - iPhone 4 - Media (6NF or 6NR, from 9/2010 and up) ...[Add $54.00]

And they told you that this item is being shipped to you now? How certain you are that is exactly that 84212199392 item number?

If that is true, even with a customs fee it may be cheaper then buying from a Canadian BMW dealer.
They are shipping internationally!
$210.00 + $35 shipping + Customs Fee.

wouldn't it be easier just to order 84212199392 which is only $180 plus shipping and customs/gst. if it ships by UPSP you will likely pay very little for customs as opposed to Fedex/UPS

Ack! My dealer said they are waiting to receive them from Germany... I get my car tomorrow and would have been great timing! I ordered from getbmwparts.com so hopefully it is here when I get back from PCD!

Well it looks like only a shipping label has been created. Once it gets here, I will confirm that it is the correct part.

Don't understand. Those two adapters above are the one for 'media' but are not same price?

US vehicles need the xxxx390 one. They are now out at Getbmwparts. I tried to get one shipped to me at the pcd! To which, I might add, so far our luggage is still in Chicago and it is raining. But I still get my car in a couple hours!

Guys, can we all agree that these adapter numbers are applicable only for iPhone 4 and for any country in the world:

- Basic 84212199389
- Music 84212199390
- Media 84212199392

I have just ordered an iPhone 4 Media Snap-in Adapter for my X3 2011 35i car from this page:
http://www.trademotion.com/partlocat...31&startrow=26

Accessory Catalog
OEM BMW F25 X3 Apple iPhone Snap-in Adapters
iPhone 4 - Media (6NF or 6NR, from 9/2010 and up)
$210.00 + shipping/handling + customs

They have them in stock and it should be shipped to me in Canada in a day or two.

I have exchanged messages with them and they confirmed to me that this is that newest adapter 84212199392 part number.

Well guys, I got my package, and Im not happy. They sent my the iPhone 3G Media adapter when I ordered the iPhone 4 one. So I emailed them about it. We will see. Its weird because they listed the correct part number in an email I got from them, and then the invoice they sent me had the wrong one.

BTW Tischer BMW / Trademotion / getbmwparts are all the same thing.

Ill update info here once I hear back from them. Below is the email I got.

Thank you for your business. Your order has been shipped. Please note, the tracking number gets generated when we order the shipping pick up, but does not become active until the order actually gets picked up and logged into the shipper's system. It may take 24 hours for the number to be active.

Order Number: XXXXXXX has shipped. Please note the tracking number and total order cost for your records.

Part Number Part Description Quantity Price Total
84212199392* OEM BMW F25 X3 Apple iPhone Snap-in Adapters 1 $180.00 $180.00
Sub Total $180.00
Shipping $19.90
Handling Fee $4.95
Tax $0.00
Total $204.85

Do you need the Tech Pkg to use the 4G adaptor or will it work on any X3?

OK guys, after reading this post again, I decided to tear open the package, and low and behold, I do have the correct part. It is 84212218390, but is clearly the iPhone 4 media adapter. The instruction manual says it's a Music/Media Adapter for iPhone 3G/3GS, but it's definitely the right part. I had to retract my email to www.getbmwparts.com and apologize. Looks like I got a good deal. Some pics for you.

But X3inator, it says on the product that is 84212199392 not 84212218390. So you are the first one with a new correct media adapter for iPhone 4. Cool.



Dear Cactus, not every X3 can use this adapter. If you are going to buy this adapter you will also need:

ZOX – Package (6NR – Apps & 6NF – Smartphone Integration)
609 – Navigation with iDrive
6NL - (BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth and USB)
(the 609 and 6NL are maybe included in your Tech pkg.)
