I got my car Monday, and I have paired probably 3 other BMW's. I fought with this thing for two days, and just paired it, I had forgotten one final step and it did perfect. Yorgi, I really appreciate all your posts, and my next step is to order a new key, and get my ipod working. I have the CD player, so I am going to talk to dealer today to see about costs for it. I was able to play a couple of cd's that I burned, so I should be able to do this myself.
My iphone was the first step to key in, then the idrive input the code, then the step I could not figure out was to move the idrive stem to the right to get it in the program mode, and it went straight to it.
