iphone 5 and y cables

Folks...can't find the answers I'm looking for cause I don't know the right questions...I have a 2010 build my 2011. It has the y cable adapter. Is there anyway to update the combox so that I can get my album art and stereo bluetooth to work with my new iphone 5? Do I need to purchase a newer version combox? If so does anyone have a ball park figure I can expect to pay? Thanks in advance

If you are using the Y cable, you likely don't have the combox. Combox started with Sept 2010 production but BMW was selling model year '11 here in the US before that so you could have a MY '11 without the combox. My Sept '10 build car has the combox and I use the standard white Apple cable to connect my iPod, no Y cable needed.

You can do the upgrade so search for some of the vendors offering it...
Current: 2011 Space Grey E90 M3, DCT, Comp. Pkg., Conv. Pkg., everything but Cold Weather Pkg!
Gone: 2008 550, Space Grey, Sports Package, Sport Auto Transmission.
Sold: 2004 545i (U.S.), Steptronic, Silver Gray.
