Sorry to hear about your problems. I know EDC and Power settings are definitely supposed to remembered forever for a single hump M3, but I honestly had no idea Bluetooth Audio streaming was supported without IDrive. That surprises me as I thought the software to do it was part of the whole IDrive hardware package.

FWIW, I've read posts about glitchy behavior similar to yours relating to both IDrive and non-IDrive cars. In other words, spec-ing the car with IDrive isn't going to guarantee you trouble free electro-gadetry in your car.

I am workign with BWM NA on addressing the issues I am having, but I know iDrive would have addressed both of them.
