E83 X3 Bluetooth

I recently bought a 2010 X3.
Am I right to assume that as it came with a BMW Passkey Number for Bluetooth integration that the car itself will in fact have all necessary equipment from the factory? I have been trying to pair up an iPhone 4 and 4s but no luck.
I did a bit of research and found that some x3's have a Bluetooth module in the left space of the trunk, I don't see anything in mine.i just wonder if any one else has experience with this.
BTW the iPhone 4s recognized hands free device but said the Bluetooth needs to be activated.

Not sure about the X3, but it should be the same as my 5 series.

When you go to pair section on your BMW's onboard computer, it will ask you to create a passkey (using the dial). You then have to input the same one onto your iphone.

The car manual should explain it in detail.
