Click on the idrive controller, then click the options button next to the controller, and you'll see the bluetooth options for the phone. The telephone option should have a check mark, and the music will not. Click the check mark next to music and it should work.

You will have to do this anytime you have previously had the phone connected to the car by USB as that disables bluetooth streaming.

This is the problem I had and just figured out last night with help from my service advisor.
Possibly the most annoying flaw with the M3? Any way around this anyone?
