Hi, got this email from Mini today about the iPhone 5 cradle. Looks like they've finally pulled their finger out and made on for the gen2.
Dear Mr Cartmell
Thank you for your email dated April 12, 2014, regarding our range of accessories. I am delighted to learn of your interest in our products and I apologise for any inconvenience that the delay in releasing such technologies may have caused you.
I can confirm that MINI UK does now have iPhone 5 cradles available to order via the Parts Department of any MINI Approved Dealership.
I can advise that the appropriate cradle will need to be ordered for your model of car and the accessory’s compatibility depends on the vehicle specification to confirm which cradle fits which MINI. Therefore, I recommend liaising with the Parts Advisors based within an appointed dealership, as they are best placed to assist you further. Please note that they will require the chassis number of your MINI. I have included a link below to our dealer locator facility, should you require support in locating your nearest approved dealer:
Thank you for taking the time to contact MINI UK. I trust that this information is of use to you. Should you have any additional queries, please do not hesitate to contact me.
