But maybe I'm mistaken and I'm confusing it with something I saw during my last alien abduction...???
Siri can work when connected to a car or any other Bluetooth handsfree profile device (and maybe headset), but cars that have their own voice recognition setup (like BMWs) don't pass what you say to your phone when you press the steering wheel button. The only way to get Siri working while paired with your car at the moment is to invoke her directly on the phone by holding the Home button, at which point she will hear you over Bluetooth through the car's mic (since she tells the car that you all of a sudden started a phone call). Obviously not ideal, but evidently that will be changing somehow.
