If i decided to use my ipod classic do i need a special cable...BMW hints that a particular cable will be required.
Special cable (y-cable) cheap on ebay / Amazon which is I think what you're referring to and think this is just for some (older?) ipod's that didn't support audio out. From advice i've seen it's to try the standard Apple cable with the ipod first. Been told the USB does plug into arm-rest and also not sure if there's one in the glove box any more, so maybe software updates etc all done using the arm rest USB.
Like you i'll be fiddling about next Friday to get everything working!
