Thanks, the instructions you posted worked for me.
The "no incoming chime/sound on either the iPhone nor the car's system" has bugged me. I am hopping someone fixes this.

"Pretty close" meaning the configuration seems to be good, but I can't fully test it.
Updated: Yes, it does work (text messaging.) The instructions quoted from above are good. Except I don't think the set-it-to-auto-lock-one-minute is necessary. It received a text message about ten seconds after I pressed the top lock-button. There is no incoming chime/sound on either the iPhone nor the car's system, just the little envelope icon on the iDrive display. The voice-reading of the text message is decent, if not more than a little Cylon-like. For long drives, this will be handy because one can decide whether a text message is meaningful enough to pull over and respond, or just keep driving to the next logical stopping point.
