Extend BMW iPhone Y-Cable

Is there any way to extend the y-cable in the center console? I'd like to be able to have the phone in my lap while it is still connected.

I tried extending just the iPhone cable portion with and eBay adapter, but that didn't work

I forget the details but I think if you don't have iDrive you don't get the combox. No combox means you do need the y cable for listening to your iPod, even in 2011.75 cars and beyond. Sorry, but I get stuck on iDrive equipped cars as that is what I have!
