With iDrive you can stream over Bluetooth but you have to enable music streaming in an options menu that is hard to find. If you plug in your phone to the USB port it disables Bluetooth streaming and you have to find that hidden menu to reset it again.

When streaming Pandora over Bluetooth the song title always updates. When using the USB port or the y cable the screen doesn't update with the current song. That's so annoying.
