I'm trying the "its an ipod interface" argument so we'll see. Also advising that I'm aware uk dealers are supplying with it.

I suppose the key is - how is it described on spec?
Fair point, but I don't think it is unreasonable to expect the interface to work with an ipod, given that the ipod is the most popular MP3 player on earth.

The problem is it doesn't. if, as Trigger says it doesn't play DRM music downloaded from i-tunes and doesn't support album structures then it is a half arsed piece of junk.

BMW clearly know and acknowledge this, which is why they have produced the cable - which is also included in the option in the USA.

The 6fl does not function with an ipod without the cable ... therefore the cable should be included.
