    Hi everyone. I’m new to the forum so please be gentle! I’ve just bought a 2014 330d and I’m loving it except no matter what I do, I can’t connect my iPod to the car.

The only selectable options are the CDs. If I take the...

It turned out the issue was with my car rather than the unit and so I got my original unit working. So now...
