Interesting. When I did a realoem search for 325i 2005, I got different part numbers for the right and left hand steering vehicles.

Isn't it an either-or thing between Assist and Bluetooth on pre-October '04 Production dates? Thought the combo modules didn't come out until then.

Yes. the car is only in pairing mode when it is in that second position. When the car is on, it is only in search mode. That is why your phone could see it, but (likely) why you could not pair with...
