I tried the Google app and did a voice search and interestingly this came over the car speakers via blueooth - obviously not the same as Siri and only lets you perform searches without any audio feedback. Thought it was strange this worked and not Siri - may be it's the way it is initiated?!?!?!
I think for some reason or another, Apple have deactivated this feature. Might be worth checking out iOS 6.1 when it's released to see if it works again? Also have heard some suggest that maybe our cars need to have their software updated by BMW?
