I don't have an X5 yet but I did take this into consideration when I was looking at 2009s. I thought I read that the interface on iDrive was similar between IPods plugged in directly and a DVD in the DVD changer that has your music collection on it. If this is the case (I can't test it) than maybe you don't need the iPod since you can just use a DVD-RW to store your music. Maybe a thought instead of doing all that to hook up an ipod.

I have tried the DVD rom for audio files before, but then the NAV doesnt work because i had to use the same drive. Im really interested in the USB portion not the ipod interface.

No, you lose the CD changer option but get control over ur iPod using steering wheel controls, etc...

Mine is exactly like yours, the usb charges however on the control panel/menu when trying to select USB as an audio source it will not let me - talk about confusing.
