I have not heard anything about how BT will be provided for 2005 models. I would think this will be a factory-installed option. Especially because this is already a factory-installed option for European models but not for American models because of the BMW Assist. So, I don't think it would be too difficult to get the option installed at the factory for the 2005 American models (once they figure out how to have both of them working in parallel, which to me does not look like rocket science).
I talked to the Performance Center in SC (for the special delivery option) and the guy said that, although they install accesories, they do not do the BT installation because they would have to sign a waiver. He mentioned that they'd rather have waiver and installation handled by the dealer. He also mentioned that he had heard that the BT + BMW Assist kit could be available by the end of the Summer, but he was not 100% sure because BMW is not the best at keeping schedule promises.
Overall, I believe the best choice is to enjoy the 1 free year of BMW Assist service and get the BT option installed after that. Either BMW will have a kit that allows both BMW Assist and BT co-exist, or I will just cancel the BMW Assist service, disable it, and install the BT option.

Just purchased a 2005 330 cic. It has BMW Assist (didn't want it - dealer always orders it, but then you know that from all the other threads), but also is wired for bluetooth.
Pressing the phone button on the steering wheel brings up the ACTIVATE PHONE message on the radio display - but I can't seem to figure out how to do this. Anyone know?
