Does anyone know if you can integrate a new mobile phone into the 1993 525i phone system? I have a blackberry pearl. Thanks!

no.
and yes.

they predate wireless integration and non PNP car phones. (even e46s never had bluetooth)

HOWEVER---

you have a switch on the column that can be used (wiring diagrams are wrong... search my posts on bf.c for the actual location of the wire)
you have a voice coil unused on the left mid for the phone audio
you have a phone mute input on the radio


SO--- with some work and creativity you could put a bluetooth kit in your car using the factory switch, speaker, and phone mute lead to make it LOOK like it was an OEM option.

THink Nokia ck-7w kit was the one with the Single button hang up/answer kit. and with a pearl and the voice dialing, it should work for voice dialing too.


BTW If you have a macbook you can use the pearl as a Bluetooth cell modem :)
