7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

You have to go in the Bluetooth settings and make it forget/delete paired phones. Then try to pair your phone again

Unless you have retrofitted an Facelift MMI and TCU as outlined in the Bluetooth retrofit sticky you can't pair your phone to the car. The Bluetooth in the car is only for the in car phone.
