Mein Auto: BMW 2012 650i xDrive
As for the software, I'm not really sure who needs to get their act together. However, since BBs work correctly, that shifts the blame toward Apple. I suppose BMW may have to do something special to be compatible with iOS6, but I'm just speculating.

As for volume, I think your idea if making sure the "max volume" isn't turned down is a good one. However, it seems like all volume controls go away when plugged into the cable, so iDrive might override the iPod. I use a deactivated iPhone 4S as my primary audio source, and I find it to be plenty loud - I've never turned it all the way up, even when I'm playing rock music like a stupid youth Maybe restore the iPod software? Try another iPod and see if you have the same issue? I'm just guessing here, but I don't think the 25% volume drop is normal.
