: BT Retrofit Kits

I've been trying to find out why you cannot retrofit pre 09/02 production E39 touring models with the BMW BT Retrofit kit. I've read postings on this board where the retrofit kit worked well on the sedans but do not recall seeing anything on the sport wagons.

My local dealer asked BMWNA and BMWAG and was told the conversion was not possible for my production date. No specifics given, no list of parts that would require changing or modification. BTW, I was also told the the european retrofit kit also would not work.

I was hoping that someone on the board has some additonal backgorund informtion on this topic that they may be able to provide to fill in the gaps in the information. It sure would be nice to get a BT phone instead of the standard Moto phone to interface with the hands free.

Thanks in advance for any comments or suggestions.
