The answer is "no".
You need the "Y" cable from BMW which is a problem because it doesn't exist yet. Apple is releasing a $30 adapter to convert the old dock connector into Lightning but its unclear if snapping that onto the existing Y cable will make it work.
I'm sure you have a beater iPod lying around the house. Buy this old cable, use the old iPod, wait a few weeks to see what others say about compatibility.
You were advised to get the Tech Package for iPhone integration, digital speed limit, etc. back when you asked these same questions prior to placing your order.
