Question Snap-In station for iPhone 5 (Media Version) "European Delivery"

Can anybody tell me why these aren't available in the U.S.? This is an original BMW part and obviously there is considerable demand.

Had to purchase mine from a German BMW dealer (retail over there EUR 250, about $350 by the time the card is charged) and then spend another $100 to have it FedExed overnight to Jersey as the store itself would only deliver within Europe.

An indispensable tool to me.

I think someone here on the forums placed a bulk order and is reselling them to other members.

The fact is BMW loves USA way too much so they decide to not sell such rip-off product to fellow Americans.

Not to disrespect the OP, I think this is a great product but for its asking price, I have to say that I can't afford a piece.

The reason is short supply. In Germany the entire supply sold out within 2 weeks and it is on back order.

I bought mine for $300 shipped from Germany in the first week it was released. The vendors I looked at on eBay Germany no longer have any stock.

So I think they didn't launch it in the US due to insufficient inventory.

Indeed. I have 30+ on order. No ETA currently. I'm lucky to have the one I have currently, though I became so used to not being able to dock my phone that I'm not really using it.

I tried the site above and couldnt find a translate option. I used google translate but when trying to register, they didnt have the USA as an option.
Im fine with non rush shipping to save some cost. Do you know how I can get this from them? Thanks!
