Do you have combox? What happens when you try the Apple white cable?
for a fact, my 2011 e90 (produced 6/2010) and my 2011 E70 (produced 9/2010) do not work without the Y cable; the apple white cable produces "unrecognized device" error on the iDrive. this was with the iphone 4, 4s or the new 5.
My brother-in-law has a 2011 e92 (production 3/2011) which does work just fine with the USB cable alone and I was told this production change was not universal with bmw until oct-nov 2011. (true?)
