E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Try to reset the idrive - after powering on push and hold the volume button, and the eject buttons for the cd and DVD for about 45-50 seconds (all three together). The idrive should reset and that might do it.

Great - glad to hear that did the trick... if it hadn't the next possible fix would probably be big $
