I then tried my friends iPhone 4s using just the supplied cable and it worked perfectly. Has anyone else managed to get a 'copy' lead to work with a lightning converter? Or is everyone using official BMW leads? Would be really interested to know what works for people, as im fearing that i will have to handover all of my money to BMW for one of their official leads now maybe the chip in the official lead copes with the digital/analogue conversion that is needed to work with an iPhone 5.

Thanks!
Strange my friend. I use the same cable from ebay and official adapter with my iPhone 5 and everything works perfect. Have you tried updating your idrive software via usb?

Version depends of your VIN. My is: UPD03002 (Latest Version, 5.93 MB)
Update for vehicles with production date from Juli 2011 to present.

I did the update via usb in my F20 and one week ago in my X1 2013. Everything works perfect
