Bluetooth privacy

Does anyone know if there is an easy way to quickly switch bluetooth on/off without going through the iDrive menu? I'd like a quick way to turn it off when my phone rings and I happen to have someone in the car...

Use your phone to drop the pairing.....Phil

The only challenge I've had with this is when turning off the car and staying inside. Sometimes it will transfer the call back to the X5 without asking!

My bluetooth pairing worked fine for few months, but last month when I try to switch to handset (on BBery) it transfers for half a second and the car steals the call again.
Also, when I am ready to leave the car, I shut it off and the car keeps holding on to the call and even if you keep switching, it just goes back to bluetooth speakerphone in the car.
I have to tell people to wait a minute, walk out of the car and walk out of range of bluetooth...
This is so annoying just as when pairing happens as you turn the car on, you have to wait 15-30 seconds before you can continue conversation.
Terrible integration. I hope I am the only one with these problems.
