Mein Auto: 2011 535i M sport
I did it

I was not feeling these F10 at all until I saw it as an M-sport. To me it looks like a totally different car. So I traded the E60 528i and went for the F10 535i M-sport. What a car. I can not believe the power this car has. It has everything I was missing in my 528i except CA. Premium Audio, NAV, heated everything, Black Nappa with the aluminum trim, PDC. Im going to miss my E60 but Im really loving this F10. Now if I can figure out the office part Im good. They said it can read email and Text from your phone. I set it up via bluetooth but I can only get it to see my contacts. Any ideas?

Very nice car - kinda wish I had gone M Sport myself. As for BMW office your phone must be compatible with BMW systems. Check the website to see. If I remember correctly it seems as though only blackberries will work. I've read where guys with iPones are having issues also.

That is what I guess. Crappy blackberries was the only thing that work

I did a 2.5-hour drive in my 550i today. (I got the car five days ago during vacation, so this is my first chance to really expore.)

I have a Verizon Droid X. I was able to receive a few email messages in the car. They appear to be truncated, but one was a photo, and the other was HTML, so maybe a plain text email would work better. Also, it doesn't appear to load existing unread messages, just those that arrive while you're driving.

I had someone send me a text message while he was in the car, and I couldn't figure out any way to have the car display or read it to me. Has anybody else been successful in accessing text messages with a Verizon Droid?

To be clear, my expectation was that all I'd get was the contacts, so I was happy with the email. Text would be more useful, but it's still more than I expected.

I was also told the Office part is for CrapBerries only too. I only hope iPhone compatible version is coming soon. Does anyone know? (Checking my iPhone email on the nav would be so awesome... and so much safer...)

How did you know the emails were coming in? An alert or beep? I've had zero success with my HTC Evo..

Mostly by noticing an icon (back of an envelope) on one of the gray rectangles on the navigation map.
