The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Thanks guys.

If we're talking about the same thing, the only visible sign is a simple cable running into the glove box, which you connect to your iPhone or iPod.
The graphic display then shows your music content in one of six ways, depending on which choice you make (these correspond to the CD choices in a six-CD changer). So, MP3-1 will show your playlists, MP3-2 will show artists, 3 is albums, 4 is genres, 5 is podcasts and 6 is songs. Within any of these choices (and within any playlist, say, or album, you can randomise). Drawbacks - you do it all through the iDrive and it can be fiddly, but you get used to it. And it takes a while to upload your content lists each time you disconnect and reconnect your iPhone. But the sound is great and it's at least as good as any other in-car iPod experience I've ever had.
