So you are using the BMW y-split cable? I had purchased an alternative from another vendor (didn't feel like spending what BMW was asking) but now I am seeing that if you have BMW Apps, which I do, it isn't necessary.

4) Start Music app on the iPod, see if the steering wheel buttons are working. Now... exit Music app and start Spotify. Play a song and see if you can skip songs etc.

It worked for me... maybe I was lucky!
What version of iOS are you running on your iPhone?
