This works in my Golf. Is that also an option? It seems ridiculous to charge extra to un-cripple the bluetooth.

Having an iPhone, what are my options for retrofitting anything if possible? I noticed there's an USB port. Can I for example get my songs playing on the iDrive screen?
You'll need the 'extended bluetooth' option in order to stream music without the y-cable (meaning: wireless).
If you only have standard bluetooth, you'll need that y-cable to get your songs on the idrive display!

It's the everlasting 6NH vs 6NK quest
