i just bought a 2004 X5 3.0. I noticed that it has a BMW phone and BMW assist. It also has a R/T button on steering wheel and a microphone close to rear view mirror. Here is my question:

Does this mean my vehicle has a Bluetooth car kit? If yes how can i pair my phone with it, i tried pressing down R/T button but my phone did not find any bluetooth device in the search.

If not, what is the other method to use my cell phone handsfree in my X5 using its microphone and number dialing capability ( i noticed one phone number appears on the screen when i press R/T, maybe the previous owner was using the feature somehow)

Help will be highly appreciated.

You do not have bleutooth in a 2004 X5, unless the previous owner (or you) upgraded it. You will need to replace the old TCU (assist module) with the ULF (Bluetooth and Voice Recognition Module). For good information on the X5 upgrade to bluetooth, check out the following link

Installation in your car is very simple and quick.
