You're probably right Steve, I'm sure if you don't order 6FL you will only have the 1/8" AUX input. I think the real 'meat' of the option is the chipset in the audio and iDrive systems to allow the integration and control.
Notice the option verbiage does not say "iPod". This is a Euro brochure. I'll bet the U.S. brochure will say "iPod".
I think it is bad luck to be superstitious
