Question Ex-M Coupe owner needs Part number help :(

Sorry to post here, but there are few who can help me, and they reside here.

My '03 3 series (still LOVING the Natural Brown / Black interior!) has the ability to integrate with Bluetooth wireless phones. Rather than spend $2100 on the Motorola kit, I can buy a bluetooth receiver, for under $500, install it in the pre-wired location, and have cool things like caller ID on my radio display, browse my phonebook via steering wheel controls on the radio display, place and end calls from the steering wheel, adjust volume, view call time from on board computer, etc.

All this with no wires. Apparently my phone can be sitting in my laptop bag (Coach leather, for you Leather guys) and still sync with the car to perform these functions, so the Bluetooth is sending audio and data info via Bluetooth, enabling complete hands free communication and phone functionality. Seems like super cool technology to a geek like me!

My question is... can someone look at their late '02 or '03 parts CD (or online or?) and see if they can retrieve part numbers for anything Bluetooth? There ought to be part numbers for the phone cradles (optional) and the Bluetooth receiver and bracket as needed. I'd REALLY appreciate it. I called my dealer but they said that they were still using Win95 yada yada and couldn't install any recent ETK releases or something. They told me if I could get them a P/N they'd call BMWNA and order the part.

I'm looking forward to trying this out, and would love to have a few part numbers!

Thanks guys!
