But I did not know the PIN. I tried 0000, then 1234, then the last four digits of the VIN and none worked. Do you know of a simple way to find it out? [It's not in the documentation I had received - did not mention Bluetooth] Do all the same model BMWs have the same PIN?
See Paul, it's like finding a missing treasure! The pin# is specific to your car. As I mentioned in one of my earlier posts, it should be on the COP unit in the truck: "you'll need to locate the COP unit in the trunk & it should be on it (4 digit#). The COP is located on drivers side behind the carpet cover, mounted on the back of the back seat." I had to actually crawl into the truck to get close enough to plug the COP unit in. I think you'll find the key (PIN#) to your new treasure chest there.
