Adding Bluetooth

I would like to use the bluetooth feature offered in the E46. I have a 2003 330xi. Does the fact that it is prewired for cell phone mean that it already has some of the bluetooth components installed? What do I need to buy to get the system running?

unfortunately its pretty pricey to get the bluetooth retrofitted in. Its roughly 1k with parts + install + programming. You can buy an upgrade kit from your dealer. Also you can check bimmernav.com

Do you have BMW assist? If so if you buy the ULF (bluetooth) retrofit kit from BMW you will lose your BMW assist capabilities.

Wow, thanks. I thought I might be able to save a bit due to the pre-wiring for the phone sytem, but I guess they do not share any components. It would be great to have, but then again, a bluetooth headset can be had for less than 50 bucks.

bmviz is on a distinguished road
Aftermarket option

rfthomas

After market option can get you Bluetooth for much less that OEM with better capability to new BT phones. The best cost effective solution is to install Parrot 3000 evolution kit with Steering wheel bottoms and Audio integration.
Take a look at Parrot at tigerdirect.com – they on special and at [url=http://www.connects2auto.com/9.html]/url] for the adapter.



Enjoy
