Help with iPod connectivity on e92 335i!

So I'm going to start with my car. It's a 09 e92 335i premium, sport, nav, harmon/Kardon, logic7, with iPod option on the window sticker(forgot exactly what it's called). I bought my car used and there were no cables/docks/snap-in/etc. I assume the previous owner kept it. I've been reading all over the forums and searching away and am totally lost. I'm confused because I've read that I need the "y-cable" and then I only need the iPod USB. I thought the iPod was supposed to rest in the glove box, but wouldn't I have to plug the y cable in the center console? I have the USB and aux in the center console as well as the USB in the glove box. Thanks in advance for any help/info and sorry if this has already been asked.

Well, to be sane, plug the normal USB cable into the USB socket in the glove box, and test it. If it doesn't work there, and it doesn't work in the armrest (and it shouldn't), then you'll need to buy the Y cable you're talking about. $20 on amazon.

If you want to plug in an iPhone 5, that's fine, but you'll also need the lightning to 30 pin cable (don't get the adapter, get the cable, for sure).
