Couple of quick questions

Hey, had the day off today, so going through everything and noticed a couple of things. I'm sure they've been covered ad nauseum here, so forgive me.

Looking at my OG window sticker, my 6er is fairly stock, only the L7 is billed. But I noticed that I have a couple of things that I didn't think were standard, but appear to be on the 05.

Is the 8.8 iDrive screen with NAV standard? I thought the 6.6 one was. Also, is that screen HD and is there anyway to play DVD's through the NAV DVD drive?

Is the ambiance lighting package standard on the 05? It's fantastic, totally in love with it.

Other little things I thought cost extra; the lumbar. The WB, weather band station, don't ask me why, didn't think everyone had that. Weird thing is, there's no heated steering wheel? I know the button is in an odd spot, but it's not there. I posted I had the cold weather package, but I don't.

Blue tooth works great, but there's no way to stream music from your iPhone, right? And it says, cell phone hookup, which I thought meant a holder and outlight in the center console, but there's nothing there. Also, there's no hotel function in the center console or valet keys.

For the power outlights, I have the lighter in the ashtray and the hidden one under the passenger side glove, which doesn't seem to work with my iPhone charger, but my lighter does. So basically, there are only 2 power plugs? Seems strange, I thought I read there was one in the glove box, wish there was, so I could leave my phone plugged in and locked. But if I do leave my phone plugged in, it shuts off with the car right, so it won't drain the battery? Which is great if it does, every other car I had kept charging, which I don't want in case I forget and leave something plugged in.

Also, having trouble programming my garage door opener, didn't think that was standard either? But I followed the instructions, repeated many times, but it's a no go. Is there any trick to that I'm missing?

Anyway, loving the car. Quite simply, one of the finest automobiles ever made, it's a sexy beast! Going to get some more pics up this weekend.
