Anyway, reading through BMW's description of the BMW Connected app in the iTunes store, it has this to say...

Please note: the BMW Connected app can only be used in BMW models with the "Apps" special equipment. A retrofit has been on offer for this special equipment since 01/2012 (NOTE: retrofit is not available in USA or Canada). Contact your BMW dealer for details.

As I do have the Professional Multimedia/Nav system (ZMP) I'm taking the above to suggest that a retrofit for option 6NR might be a possibility at some point in the future on the F30.... or am I just being wildly optimistic?
Don't do it Rob, the BMW apps is a waste of money. Mine doesn't sync 5 times out of 6, and even when it does, can drop out when making telephone calls. Avoid!!!!
