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.


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?
