2013 X6 5.0 premium sound questions
Can someone please let me know the following as I am unsure if I should get premium sound.

1. Will the x6 be able to recognize the iphone's music by just plugging into usb port in car?
2. Is there a usb port standard on the x6? or you need to get the premium sound?
3. Is there really a diff between premium sound vs. no premium sound?

Is the premium sound pkg worth it?

1. Yes
2. Yes I believe so tho I am only 80% sure
3. I listened to a the non premium and it was good. Certainly something you will like. But the premium sound is much better in that if you tune the EQ and use surround it is an incredible difference.

Dingular comments are spot on. Non premium sound for BMW's sounds terrible. Also depends on the type of music you listen too. I am jazz man, so the premium sound is crisp and balanced. IMHO...

My friend tried plugging his usb from his Iphone into my 2009 X6 with premium sound, nothing happened? Is it just me or do I need a bmw cable or something?

You need to plug it into the USB in the console (arm rest)

Get the premium sound. Do not even waiver. Mine came with wireless Bluetooth too. No more cords. And listening to pandora with this system is truly unbelievable. And yes all your songs are synced from your device. So simple. Everything is automatic. You push the power button and everything syncs right up!!! Love it.
