I found it easier to upload my playlists via the cable (I didn't get a cable with the car; maybe because I have iDrive???) but my standard Apple USB cable worked fine. Once uploaded I could control through iDrive system. Could also play through Bluetooth, but not specific playlists. If I didn't like a particular choice, I could use the steering wheel controls to switch songs.


My '11 E92 had iDrive and I could just use the regular cable if I remember right.

I'll look around the glovebox again, I thought I may have felt something in the upper LH corner but I didnt try to look from underneath, I was just feeling around from the drivers seat.
