I am enjoying the Bluetooth audio option, which is a nice upgrade from my previous 328i which did not have this feature.

What I have found interesting is that the idrive system does not download the track information from the iphone with bluetooth audio selected. This would seem to defeat the purpose of using bluetooth audio when driving as you cannot do anything other than go forward or backwards one track at a time. I thought that the purpose of the Bluetooth audio was to allow you to keep your phone in your pocket, etc, while driving, and to be able to control music selection wirelessly.

Am I missing something here with the setup?

If not, is there a place to go to send BMW feedback for a future feature upgrade?

I don't think you're missing anything, and it's one of the reasons why I plug in my phone to the USB instead of using the bluetooth for audio. The idrive features you get when using the USB are pretty good. You're able to sort by artist, playlist, album, song and even enter searches...
