I apologize if I'm misunderstanding this, but I already can stream my music via bluetooth from my iphone on my combox-equipped M3 (Nov 2010 build). I don't need any additional equipment (i.e. Aircast or BB Gateway). Looks like you too have a 2011.5 with the new combox, 1MORELAP.

However, I trick I read somewhere else on here... I did need to add my phone twice via bluetooth - once for my phone, and once for the audio feed. In the audio idrive menu, there's a bluetooth setup option. Just add the device again, and then the music note icon lit up to indicate an audio connection.

As an aside, when I connect my iphone via the standard USB cable, I lose my bluetooth audio connection (not my phone connection), and have to re-sync the bluetooth audio the next time I get in the car. Strange.
