BMW Assist/Bluetooth on 2006 with Premium Package...

I'm looking at a used 2006 X3 with Premium Package (among other options). The dealer says that Bluetooth is included when you get BMW Assist, which is included in the Premium Package. I've read conflicting stuff online. Can anyone offer some guidance?

This thing also has the upgraded stereo system, but there's no mention of a CD-changer. I assume that since it doesn't mention it, it doesn't come with it, right?

Thanks.

I have a 05 X3 with premium package, the premium package included BMW assist, bluetooth and upgraded leather, but I don't think my stereo system has a CD-changer and I'm not sure if the stereo system is upgraded or not, how can I tell?

My '06 X3 came with the premium package including Assist and Bluetooth. I let the Assist expire, but the BT still works fine. You can purchase a 6 CD changer that fits into a space in the cargo area. The '06 is THE model year to get. No transmission problems that plague the '07 models and a few more HP than the '04 model. Good luck.

06 models have the same M54 engine as 04's and 05's. N52 engines (260hp) started with 2007 MY...

Hey -

I'm in Denver as well and just bought a CPO 2006 X3 from Schomp BMW. I have the same package. I dumped the assist, but the Bluetooth is great.

Go for it.

Off the top of my head, Premium Package in 2006 includes stuff like:

Montana Leather
4-way Lumbar support
auto-dimming mirror
electric folding rearview mirrors (maybe)
Bluetooth and BMW Assist module.

Standard "options" in the US included things like

Moonroof
Electric seats w/memory
Automatic headlamps and rain sensor
Automatic climate control
Interior trim
Multi-function steering wheel and cruise
and tons more.

Premium Audio was a rare $675 upgrade that most dealers didn't bother to order. If you have DSP settings under tone adjustment, then you have the premium sound.

The 6CD changer has always been an accessory costing about $500.
