No you don't. You only have a combox if you have iDrive, and I'm pretty sure it wasn't even a thing in '08. Anyway, the regular old USB cable would have worked if you did.

Since we've established that you DON'T have a combox, but rather 6FL (a MULF), yes, the Y cable and lightning adapter should work just fine.
Thanks for the tips sir...and here's the most recent update:

1. Purchased the Y Cable.
2. Used both Authentic Apple Lightning to 30 Pin Adaptor and Cable.

RESULTS:

1. Audio plays perfectly.
2. Links up under "Ipod" on the stock head unit.
3. Data of Artists and Songs show.

UNFORTUNATELY....=( It does not charge the Ipad Mini.

I have a feeling the Ipad Mini requires more juice than an Iphone 5 for it to pick up a charge.

What are your thoughts guys?
