I saw your thread about NBT install to E9x M3. Love to see it in person one day!!!!

I've spent nearly £3,000 on individual audio, combox, snap in adapters etc just to try and get music streaming from phone and video playback on my CIC.
3K!! That's what NBT and I audio cost me

The cable works really well and the sound quality is far better than the standard jack port. It also displays the album art if your music folder contains any. It also looks pretty neat and I like the BMW logo that appears on the iPod.

Does it differ from the standard ipod cable (the white one not the BMW Y cable)? I thought CIC always had the ability to use the standard cable?

Sweet looking cable! Thing is though, I literally just had combox installed yesterday and seeing that you have artwork display - it probably means you have combox too.

I managed to run the exact same thing with the standard USB apple cable 30pin.

I was more curious, if it would work previously without combox because I had to change the USB port in the armrest and that made it possible to use apple usb cables lightning or 30pin without a y-cable cable.

From the looks of it, this is just a fancy BMW 30pin USB which isn't required if you already have combox CIC.

I think without combox, you had to use the y-cable cable. as previously connecting directly to the USB port lightning/30pin wouldn't transfer audio digitally and had to go through AUX and `USB for power / track display only.

It does look good doesnít it! I like the BMW branding and prefer the colour to the regular white apple cable. As for a combox, Iíve no idea Iím afraid! Iíve had the car for less than 3 weeks.
Anyway, I reckon itís well worth £26.
