The main change as I can see it is that if you specify the Enhanced Bluetooth option (6NK), you can use your iPhone/iPod with the standard Apple Cable - no BMW Y-cable required
The downside is that this doesn't appear to work with my old iPod 4g (pushing 8 years old now and still going strong!) - the iPod says connected but the car just ignores it It works great with any of the iOS based iPods though, and i'll try with a "classic" model this weekend when I visit my parents. I'll end up just using my work iphone for it though I think, it works well with track browsing, album art, voice control..really nice. Hopefully BMW will release a snap-in adaptor for the iPhone 5 when it's released..will get that then too. Anyway going a bit OT..
the "standard" F20's still only seem to work via the Y-Cable though, so it appears that 6NK is required - it's an expensive option but it's the best way to get good sound quality from your iPod.
Looking at the latest brochure Enhance Bluetooth now appears to be option 6NS
