OK, '07 550 and the only place to charge the cell phone is to keep the cigarette lighter flipped open. Really, really for $100,000 you couldn't stick an accessory charger slot in the car somewhere....

...now someone tell me I'm an idiot and there is another place. Please!

Sure, there's an additional 12V auxillary plug in the trunk! :D

I would suspect that that charging your cell phone shouldn't be an every day process, so just dealing with the 12V cigarette lighter every once in a while is just something to live with. Take heart that pretty much everything else is designed well.

I added one inside the center console.

I picked up a 12V wire under the console and hard wired the Blackberry car charger into that (break open the plastic casing and extend the red wire to 12V and the black wire to ground) with the flying lead coming out by the side of the seat.

As Karl says, they want you to take the whole kit.
