The cigarette lighter on these cars are very flimsy - the core seems to always want to come out of its housing when hardware (radar detector, for example) is unplugged from it. Happened to my 02 320 and my 05 500. Does anyone know of a permanent fix? Does anyone else have this problem?

I was thinking about installing after market lighter housings. Everything I plug into mine either fall out or don't connect properly. Like a power inverter for my laptop, or my air compressor.

There's a plastic adapter you can buy for pennies that will fix that problem. I had to do that on my E (the adapter came with my radar). I think I have an xtra one. If I find it I'll PM U.
