Mein Auto: BMW 2012 650i xDrive
Here's where I stand:
- iPhone 5 with latest software (iOS 6).
- iPhone 4S deactivated and used solely for iPod function. This is plugged into the white Apple cable and USB port.
- iPhone 5 has BT turned on and is linked to the car. Notifications are turned on for text and e-mail in the settings menu. BT audio is turned off for this phone.
- Texts load in iDrive only if they are received while in the car with the phone connected.
- E-mails load in iDrive only if they are received while in the car with the phone connected AND I switch notifications off then back on for each account every time I get in the car. E-mails are currently appearing as text messages rather than e-mails in the iDrive menu.

Hopefully Apple will come up with a software fix for this ASAP.

The following link (see page 5) has some pics I posted illustrating my current iPhone 5 settings:
