    Yep. My wife has a 2006 3-series and it works with my 8700c and her 8700c. On occasion (very rare) the car can't find the BlackBerry, but it really is a rare occurrence.

    One thing: when you pair them the first time, you'll get the "successfully paired" message, but, the car and BB really aren't "connected." The next time you get in the car, it should work just fine.

    If it doesn't, don't worry I'll take the car off your hands

    yeap, werks great, my sis just got a 06 3 series...werks just dandy, especially since it cuts out everything and the person is on the stereo/speakers when your talking to them...and the ride is nice and quiet, so u dont have to worry bout the person on the end not hearing you

    Apparently I need to upgrade from my non bluetooth compatible truck! Let's trade and that should take care of your concerns.

    LOL Anybody know if I will be able to pair a BT-equipped van or minivan with my BB in the future?

    Yes - even though as of Nov 2006 the BMWUS.com site says that a only Blackberry 8700c's can connect (Cingular versions), I easily paired my wife's 8700g (T-mobile) with a 2005 BMW 330xi . Her address booked popped up on the radio console like magic. One note - once you pair the BB to the car, you have to restart the car for it to work. Very very cool.

    I don't have a BMW per say but, I do have a bluetooth capable phone and love it. If the bluetooth is on it is set to automatically connect when I get into the car. The reception is great and call dispaly is cool. That way it stays in my holster and never has to come out (because you shouldn't message while driving)
    Oh it's a 2006 Acura TL by the way. Awesome Car
