Do I need BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth and USB? What's it give me that I don't get automatically?

I don't need cover art or toys, but being able to play songs from an ipod would be nice.

What phone/phone book access do I gain with the package that doesn't come with the car?

First off, welcome aboard.

You want to get this feature, especially if you're buying the car and plan to keep it more than 3 years. The only way you'll ever get any of the advanced functionality that future smart phones will have you need to get this, perhaps BMW Apps too.

Otherwise, you'll be like all those 2010 BMW E90 owners who said "Bluetooth? I don't need no stinkin' Bluetooth, I can just make calls by hand, no worries."
