It looks like the module tricks the iDrive system into reading the iPod as an MP3 CD - is that accurate?
You have handsfree support, not A2DP streaming support. So the Mobridge does give you an upgrade in terms of bluetooth utility.

And you are correct, the unit emulates a CD changer on the MOST bus with an MP3 CD loaded up.

All in all, it's pretty ideal. From what I hear, they work quite well, and the integration is certainly unbeatable short of a 6FL and 644 retrofit. But even with those, you still don't get A2DP streaming. So it's slightly better in that way.
