    I purchased a 2006 330ci and finally managed to pair my iPhone with the system. However, the car's Bluetooth name is "Ricky's BMW." I would like to name her "Bonnie." Does anyone know how to change the car's Bluetooth name? I cannot find anything in the manuals or on line.

    Thanks

    If it says this on the vehicle's radio then you just need to delete the named device. If the vehicle is coming up as that name on your bluetooth phone menu, I am unaware of any way of doing this. The vehicle normally comes up with BMW and the last vin numbers and couldn't be changed.
