I was wondering if any one in the UK has found a lead to connect iPhone 6 to the usb/aux connector in BMW's so it will work with the stereo.
Used to have one for my iPhone 4s but struggling to find one for my iPhone 6

Thanks

Need the year, model, and audio/iDrive options you have on your BMW please.

Had one of those y cable's from ebay which worked great with iPhone 4s

Have you tried the Apple 30 pin to lightning adapter? That should work with your existing BMW y cable.
