Sorry to dig up an old thread but I have a similar question..

Soon to take delivery of a late 2011 production E90 318i which has the following:

- Basic BMW Professional Radio
- Steering wheel controls
- Bluetooth telephone preparation
- USB audio interface

- NO I-Drive/CIC

What I am interest to find out is if I can play an Iphone/ipod natively through the professional radio without utilising the AUX input. (Basically using the standard apple cable instead of the BMW cable).

For the above, I understand that the COMBOX may have native support, but the MULF does not.

Question is, with this setup, if an iphone/ipod doesnt work just over usb, will changing out for a combox enable this functionality (for an iphone).

Going further, would this allow the use of the music or media snap-in adaptor so that USB audio could be provided from an iphone, from the cradle???

Thanks for your help.
