Mein Auto: 2005 330i ZHP
No Bluetooth Passkey card with my new 330i!!

I picked up the 330i ZHP yesterday and love it. I am working on the Bluetooth pairing and my phone finds the car and identifies it. Then it asks for the "Passkey". I found on another thread that there should be a passkey card in my paperwork or manuals. No such luck. Of course I will call them tomarrow morning but is there anything I can do to figure this out tonight? Thanks, J

Wow, that sucks. Of course it's better than my situation: I have a bluetooth passkey but BMW tells me I can't have bluetooth.

I had the same problem yesterday and understand your frustration. Took the car to the dealership today and they said that the Porter who prepared my car probably didn't know what it was and threw it away. They hooked the car up to the computer and recovered the key. Good news is, it works fine now.

Did you check the backside of the cover of the leather manual case found in your glove compartment?

This picture was posted in another thread. It shows where you can locate your passkey on your TCU located in the trunk atop the CD Changer/Nav.
