There is a huge thread that is not getting any attention from Spotify because it's marked as "implemented" but it is not. Spotify should work on BMW ConnectedDrive, like it does on iOS (and it does on the very latest 7-Series BMW)

Vehicles with a production date before March 2013 will need a Navigation system Business or Professional and the option BMW Apps (6NR). Vehicles with a production date after March 2013 will need a Navigation system Business or Professional and the option ConnectedDrive Services (6AK). You will also need an active data contract for your smartphone to use the application.
