No, your car will not do this as it is. But, it doesn't take much to do it. Do a search on streaming Bluetooth, there are a bunch of threads on how to do it without much cost.

That's not the same tire, and not the same size. 2008 and later 550s with the Sport Package have 19" rims. And, I have Michelin Pilot Super Sports, not Pilot Sport A/S.
