Just recently released for the US, you can order one, but no idea how long it will take.

I got one but beware it is designed for the idrive 4.2 system. Most 2013 6 series have the old system and will need to wait for the music/media cradle coming out in early 2014. I got one that would work but no music in my 2013 F13 M6 but it works flawlessly in the 2013 B7 which has the new system. All 2014 6 series should work fine with the present connect cradle.

I just checked the BMW USA site, I can only get a snap in adaptor for a 3/3g or 4/4s for iPhones. Come on! How many 2014 M6 owners have a iPhone 3/3g?? When will the 5/5s be out? The iPhone 5 has been around for a year now.

The 2014 will work with the connect adapter, the 2013 requires the unreleased music/media adapter which is due out in Jan 2014.

Do you know the P/N which you purchased. The cradle for 2014's and 2013's (without music) has been out a while. The new one (ending in P/N 9), allows phone and music operation with an early 2013 like mine.

I'm out of town, but when I get home I'll check. Mine plays music and allows phone, but I can do that through Bluetooth, so there's really nothing this thing can do that a usb cable or charger can't do.
