Mein Auto: 2005 545i
Bluetooth programming

So I'm trying to get the Bluetooth to pair with my iPhone, and I'm having no luck. I think I need a specific pass code? I tried making one up but no dice. It's an 05 545i if this makes a difference.

Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You need a specific passcode. If you have the books for the car look for a card that has the instructions in several languages. Thus card will also have the pin on it.

No SPECIFIC code needed

I paired my new Iphone 5 yesterday. It asked for a code on the phone, so I entered 0000 (random number I picked)...Idrive then asked for the same code to be enetered, so I did 0000 on Idrive to match the phone entry...i was all set

This is correct, 0000 is the generic code for both idrive and iPhone
