Anyone know whether FM Transmitters, like the ones on e-bay for listening to MP3 through a car stereo etc, are legal in the UK?

These are for very short range transmissions and are on general sale.

Strictly speaking such use is illegal but it's highly unlikely that anyone would be prosecuted for using one because of the short transmission range available.

Watch the price of 'legal' units go through the roof as manufacturers attempt to recoup the cost of certification in order to get the <ahem> 'coveted' CE mark. (Which is, of course, fair enough).

Illegal units will still be around for a long time to come.

As Stuartli says, it's highly unlikely that anyone would be prosecuted for using one because of the short transmission range available.
