Caution Updating iPhone 5 to iOS 8!

I have a 2011.75 M3 with BMW Apps and an iPhone 5 that I updated with the new iOS 8. Now, I can only play music and control tracks from the iPhone itself. Prior to updating, I could put my phone on the cable and slip it in my console and control playlists and tracks using the idrive, but not any longer. I am trying to return to iOS 7, but can't seem to figure out how. Has anyone else had a similar issue? Any advice?

One way street... once you go to iOS 8 there is no going back. Even if you could get the iOS 7 image, Apple's servers will not let you use your phone until you go to 8.

I'm sure Apple will sell an adapter to make it work.

Update: I wanted to avoid a rollback to iOS7 so I tried doing another reboot and it appears that I may have the functionality again! I'm still missing some album art, but I can switch tracks and playlists again, hopefully it will work consistently!
