Siri works through bluetooth, however you have to initiate it on the phone so it is not safe while driving.

I prefer the iDrive NAV to other integrated systems I have tested. I love being able to send addresses directly from Google maps to the car (from the web or the BMW iPhone App). I'm not a fan of BMW apps however.
I have had trouble with USB tethering as well. It locks up and all of the playlists on the iPhone are grayed out.

What version of iOS are you running?
