In Reply to: 12 volt (always hot) lighter plug for phone, etc. posted by Peele Dunn on August 09, 1999 at 13:21:34:

: I am receiving a new 2000 540iA this week and noticed there is no phone plug other than the cigarette lighter. I think using this as the phone plug will be unsightly. Is there a way to have a continuously hot plug near the center console? Is there any rocket science involved, or any possible conflict with the computer? I thank you for any advice. By the way this is a very informative site, especially for BMW newcomers.

BMW now has (in their accessories catalog) a conversion cord that converts the flashlight recharger plug (in the glove box) into a cigarette lighter plug. This is in the 1999 BMW Accessories catalog.

IMHO, this is pretty neat - it's nice that BMW offers it.
