iPhone 5 and Y cable

So I've got my iphone 5 on order. I currently use an iphone 4 in my '12 328i and I don't have BMW apps or BMW assist. I can still use my current iphone 4 and play pandora, ipod music etc. with a readout on my idrive screen. I can also charge my current phone with the Y cable.

So I've searched here but can't find the answer. Does a new Y cable (lightning) exist? If not, how (if at all) will I be able to charge my iphone 5 and/or listen to music with iphone 5 in my car?

I don't think a lightning Y cable exists yet. Get this lighting to 30 pin cable: http://store.apple.com/us/product/MD...n-adapter-02-m

Use it with the Y cable that came with the BMW.

You will get more length if you buy the adapter cable over just the adapter.
