One thing I know for certain is that the OEM iPod kit only lets you select from 5 playlists: BMW1 - 5 (i.e., CD 1 -5) while DICE lets you select through any playlist, album, and/or artist combination.

I dunno if the OEM kit lets you see the track names, either (the DICE does).

Oh, and DICE's cheaper (less than $150).

The USA SPEC kit and DICE have the same core functions (steering wheel/radio control), iPod charging and direct iPod connection), the DICE goes a bit further in features:

- Text display on your radio or navigation display
- unlimited Playlists (BMW kit is limited to only 5)
- ability to browse by song, album or Playlist
- Full control of iPod's Clickwheel (BMW kit locks out the wheel)
- Retains display on iPod (BMW kit places a logo in place)
- Integrated AUX input
- All iPod features are still functional (highest rated songs, play count, on-the-go playlists, etc)

As you can see, the DICE kit is the better choice.
