So I am confused by the situation I find myself in. I have the specification listed above and have read and appreciate all your replies.

But still no Album Art. The dealer has told me the he beleives the following:

1. The only Snap-In that displays Album Art is the media snap-in
2. I cannot use this in my car as I dont have 6NF BMW Apps option
3. I can use the Y cable but this means that I dont then use a Snap-In
4. If I use the Y cable then I lose the ability to use the car's antennae for my telephone aeria.

So I would like to ask whether this set of statements is borne out by your experiences.

When I specced the car for my wife I thought that the snap-in was the right way to go. I didn't realise the full implications of not choosing BMW Apps -I didn't care for Twitter Facebook or Web radio. Now it seems that unless I selected this option I would'nt be able to play back video from my phone or display Album art either using a snap-in.

Can anyone confirm the dealer's position?

All the best,
