What's your build-date? If it's post 10/10, then you have the combox, which gives you A2DP and white iPhone sync cable compatibility. If not, you have to use the stupid BMW black cable

You can retrofit the combox. Do a search here. It's been done.

Cheaper method would be to plug this into the aux jack

I've been incredibly happy the the results from the Kinivo:

Calls still route through the BMW Bluetooth connection, but music goes through the dongle. (at least on my iPhone it works that way.
