I don't think that is the right cable for his new F11, which should have the Combox, as that cable:
"Replaces BMW Part #61120440796 or 61120440812
I am not sure what the difference is, but #61120440812 is for non-Combox vehicles and #61122179623 is the cable for Combox equipped vehicles:
"Not suitable for vehicles with Control for Combox (S6VCA).
"Only suitable for vehicles with Control for Combox (S6VCA), manufactured from September 2010 on.
