IPod cable?

Just got done with signing the paper work for a ED X1. I asked about the iPod cable and was told that some cars require the BMW cable while others don't and just require the cable that comes with the iPod.

I am getting a non i drive car if that matters. Did you all get an iPod cable with your X1? Do you have I drive or non?

We have iDrive. No iPod or iPhone cable supplied by BMW. Works perfectly with Apple supplied USB to 30 pin or USB to Lightning cable.

The cable issue is not dependent on idrive. It is an enhanced bluetooth issue.

If you have the standard/included bluetooth then you need the y cable. Not supplied.

If you purchased an option with enhanced Bluetooth then you can use the white apple cable.
