I thought I had an issue. Odd that you can't have the iphone connect via USB + Bluetooth. I don't have BMW Apps and I noticed quirky behavior playing pandora on the iPhone via USB. it works fine over BT.

This is what I'm doing now. I had a 160gb ipod in a drawer, not being used, that I loaded with my music library. It lives in the center console connected to the USB port.

My iphone is plugged into a USB charger in the center console. I have it setup for Bluetooth music/phone.

This way I can use Sirius, iPod music, or BT Pandora or whatever from the phone. I put some music on the built-in drive but its only 20gb, so just going to delete it. Not worth using since I have the iPod.
