audio over bluetooth w/o BMW assist option

Has anyone figured out how to configure their bluetooth pairing to play audio on their phone, over the car's stereo? I have the navigation/iDrive package, but not "BMW Assist with enhanced Bluetooth and USB". My delivery specialist described a few steps to reach the option: "CD/Multimedia > Bluetooth audio > highlight your phone and push your display control knob to the right. Check the audio box, go back to CD/Multimedia then external devices", but I'm guessing that this is only an option for those who chose BMW assist. At $650, I'm wondering if this is even worth it.

Without enhanced bluetooth you will not have a2dp streaming, just telephone calling capabilty with contact list upload into idrive.

Thanks for the confirmation. For some reason, my delivery specialist wasn't aware of this limitaiton, but I guess that's what the "enhancement" in enhanced bluetooth is all about. Cheers!
