    Ordered an iPhone cradle for my A3, came today / fitted in seconds and am well impressed - better then a daft 12v lead to charge it all the time !!
    Looks well in the car, very professional looking bit of kit IMO.........:rockwoot:
     
  2. Pics pls and where you order from?

    In the meantime, here's mine;

    I thought, I'll take one of just the dock and another one with the phone in place. Then I discovered a fundamental flaw in my plan.....:)

    Part number if anyone requires one - 8T0 051 435F. For iPhone 4 and 4s

    It is hideously expensive at around £100 but it's worth every penny for the ability to charge your phone and connect it to the sharkfin. Have the same cradle although mine's in the armrest as I couldn't stand it on the dash but that's just me :)

    Was this a replacement for an old factory fitted dock?

    iPhones won't connect to the sharkfin as there is no aerial out on the phone. The cradles for iPhones are just chargers, same with BMW ones.

    No, it clips onto the factory fitted dock. There are a myriad of different cradles for different phones that clip onto the standard dock, whether it's the dash mounted option or arm rest option.

    Ah didn't realise that. Oh well, don't generally have any signal problems anyway :)
