iPhone 4 versus iPhone 5s in car usb hookup

Does anyone have experience trying both? Does iPhone 5s work better or add any value? I use an old iPhone 4/16gb to play music, podcasts, pandora and iHeart Radio. Its a bit flaky. If I upgrade I would get a 64gb iPhone 5s, as I have lots of music (21gb) alone, plus podcasts and apps.

I upgraded to iPhone 5s about a month ago. I didn't notice any differences. Both worked fine.

4 works directly with BMW adapter cable if that's of any value to you.

I'm still on an iphone 4 and I haven't had any issues streaming pandora, podcasts or any other music on my phone through bluethooth or connected directly through the USB port. Song titles and stuff like that come up on the i drive screen.
