In your post you show a picture of the "office" interface - on mine, all I see is "contacts" and "messages". I dont see any other options.
Yes, do the Bluetooth update. If you still don't see the Office option, go to the Telephone section of iDrive, press the Options button, and make sure Office is checked. For some reason you have to enable that separately. After doing that, your phone will unpair and re-pair, then on the phone go to Bluetooth and tap the blue arrow for the pairing for your car. Turn on "Show Notifications". Emails apparently still don't work right (fine by me, I spend too much of my life staring at emails as it is), but texts should work.
