I don't understand why November 2013 vehicles get the upgrade while the ones build earlier do not. Heck, is that even legal???

I am still confused about the iPhone adapter. Do I need it or not to access all the features in the technology include video?

I would postpone your build to get the new iDrive, and by then there will be a new iPhone out so if you're going to get that you should wait to get a cradle for that handset.
