Apple Loseless is an "mp4 format" and is not dependent on the Apple Ecosystem for playback.
I always try to utilize the "best utilitarian" format regardless of the listening environment. I like AIFF but the BMW will not rip that format to the hard drive. Apple Loseless is adequate for my needs.
I like the BMW iPod interface because you get the album art work and artist info.
