Does anyone know of a cable or adapter for a 135i that would work w a non navi hifi unit? I would like the dash to read and control spotify as well as itunes from an Iphone5... Is this possible? Thanks!

I"m looking for the same thing. The Y adapter worked perfectly with my 4s, but not with the 5s. I may just keep my old 4s for playing music or something if that doesn't work. Ideally there would be a female 30 pin adapter to male lightning that you can just tack on to the Y adapter. Either that or BMW could make a Y adapter that fits the 5s, but that doesn't seem likely since few of their cars have this problem.

Apple makes this adapter you speak of.

I got an adapter 30 to 10 pin and it still doesn't work. Maybe I just got a faulty adapter...

I'm using the apple adapter with the Y cable and it seams to be working okay with the radio. The Y cable i'm using is from Amazon though.

I have this adapter on my Y cable. Does the trick... Power, Meta, Steering wheel controls. Just wish it was a bit longer... Still looking for something longer so I can use a cradle mounted in the CD slot.
