Professional Radio Instructions
Does anyone know where to find a manual for the Professional Radio? My manual only has for the idrive with the navigation and I can't find a manual on any of the sites! 2011 Z4 35i...

If you go to and set up an account and add your 2011 Z4 as one of your cars, you will find the pdf for the owners manuals with and without iDrive.

There might be a more direct way, but that is where I got mine.

I did register, however the owners manual does not give instructions for the radio, unless I'm missing something.

bjarne 05-21-2011 12:36 PM

No, it looks like you are right. I have iDrive so I never looked closely at the other owner's manual. I quick google search did not come up with anything :(

Your car did no come with a separate radio manual ?

Also, have you tried your BMW dealer?

debbiew 05-21-2011 12:45 PM

Yes....and they told us the same thing you did.....but it's not there. Looks like I will be calling BMW North America. No manual anywhere for this radio...thank you for looking. Let me know if you find anything anywhere!

When I got my car, it came with a small manual for the radio which was indispensaible. I got one for the phone as well, I believe. I haven't found them online so I'm glad I got the booklet.

If I have time, I can try to scan in the booklet and post it here. But I don't know exactly how many models of radios there are so no way of knowing if my pamphlet is useful to how many other people.

The radio in the car says BMW Professional. If you have a manual for that series, I am sure there are many people out there who would appreciate seeing some instructions. I know I would. Thank you for your input!

OK. I scanned in the manual for my radio (which also is a "BMW Professional" model). Hopefully this will help you and others as well.

can anyone scan the radio manual for a Business C43-casett with Cd in trunk. I cannot get the radio to recognize the changer in the trunk.:cry:

Phone Bluetooth Manual
Does anyone have the Phone or Bluetooth Manual in a PDF File I have the Radio and Owners Manual but neither of them have the voice commands for the Bluetooth controls. I beat my dealer over the head to get the two manuals I got when I purchased the 2009 z4 35i from them because it came with no manuals.

I just scanned what I got with my 2011 Z4. Hopefully this will help you. It's not the best quality scan, but should be sufficient.

Thank you!
Thank you so much for scanning and posting the audio manual! I just got a new (used) 135i, which has the same radio, and I promptly lost the manual. Couldn't find it anywhere until just now!! So thanks again.

This thread still valuable
I just purchased a 2010 328i sedan and it didn't have the professional radio manual or the Bluetooth manual. I am so grateful to find both PDFs posted on this thread. Thank you x 1000 ! :rofl: Yay for lcheong !!

lcheong 02-11-2016 08:14 AM

Glad I posted these up and people are finding it useful!

So my GF just bought a 128i convertible and she is asking me some questions. We were able to get the phone paired via Bluetooth to the radio. We cannot get it to play Pandora through there but I'm thinking it's not capable? Also if we try and connect it directly to the USB from the phone it doesn't find it or recognize it as an option. Is this just a limitation of the radio?
