I've been following these forums for a month or so, and just yesterday purchased my first piece of fabulous German craftsmanship, in the way of a 1997 328i. What a sweet sweet vehicle....
Anyway, first two things that I'd like to ask everyone about
1. Owners circle membership - seems that oc.bmwusa.com works with a database that does not recognize any VINs that have not been registered in the USA (like mine.) Fair enough. However, the Canadian BMW mirror doesn't seem to have an owners circle area. What do fellow Canadians do for OC membership? (My car was manufactured in Germany and imported into Canada.)
2. My new BMW is equipped with mobile phone circuitry. wires, antenna, mic, etc... the phone bracket which is currently on the console does not fit my phone (of course.) The question is this: can I just obtain a bracket that will work for my cell phone (Sony Ericcson T616), install it, and expect it to work? Or is the phone apparatus somehow specific to either a phone network or BMW. ?
