    See if BMW has a service bulletin or update for their head unit. (Then again, not all head units are designed to handle contacts, if you can believe that in 2018.)

    Welcome to Android Central! Go to Settings>Bluetooth, tap the gear icon next to the car entry, and make sure Contact Sharing is turned on. If it is and it still isn't working, forget the phone on the car and forget the car on the phone, then go through the pairing process again. This time, pay attention to the phone screen and see if there is a dialog box asking you to allow the phone to share contacts to the car.

    One other oddity that I remember when I used to have a 2008 BMW is that I'd have to go to the Contacts app, tap Menu>Customize View>Contacts to Display, and manually select the groups I wanted -- not All Contacts‚Äč.
