On the Merc, you can play music with your phone in your pocket. Many less expensive vehicles/brands also have this feature. You can do this with Ford SYNC, Buick Intellilink (great name... ha), and others.

Despite how cool I think it is, here is an article giving 5 reasons why it isn't:

Most notably being lower audio quality... which I don't notice.
There is Bluetooth Audio available in the M3 with iDrive since production 09/10-on.
