I had a 2000 E39, and used the CPT8000 phone in it.
(If you remember my old signature with the phone!)
Same story, bought the car without the phone. Got one off ebay for $260+
Dealer told me 2000 models use CPT7000, I argued that the cradle fits the CPT8000, and sellers on ebay tells me CPT8000 works in a 2000 car.
Dealer says 100% Negative. I went ahead and bought one, and it sure works.
ONly thing is...you have to press the button a few times to connect whenever you plug the phone into the cradle, once that's done, everything works fine.
CPT7000 is the startac and it's way way dated! CPT8000 is the Timeport
I've sold the car, and am selling the phone soon on ebay. If you are interested, let me know. Mine's CDMA and I'm using Verizon service.
