Bluetooth is a really cool system, and the safety of hands free phone operation is a big plus in my book.

I paid $575 total, including shipping, for the module and kit from a third party company so $579 from the dealership seems reasonable. Some of the nice features of BMW's Bluetooth are:

1. You can pair up to 4 phones and set the priorities on which phone takes precedence when more than one paired phone is present
2. Depending on the model of your phone, your contact list from the phone is automatically transferred to the car each time you start the car
3. Phone number and/or name shows up on the display when making/receiving calls
4. Steering wheel control to make/end calls and browse phonebook
5. Totally handsfree with very good sound quality

From what I have read on the different message boards, most people who have it are very happy with it. One thing I would recommend is to get the newest microphone (part number 84 31 6 938 762). The sound quality is much better since background noise is greatly reduced.

Has anyone been able to get the Treo 650 to work on their E46? I have a 2005 325i and the Treo (with the PalmOne car kit installed) resets every time the car recognizes it.

This appears to be a known issue, but I havent been able to successfully use the 650 in the vehicle yet.

Any ideas or success stories?

I bought my kit from Advanced Autovations (http://www.advancedautovations.com/e460402.html). I received my kit in 8 days but other people are apparently having problems with them so if you can get a similar price from the dealer, I would suggest getting it from the dealer.
