This is a link to a Bluetooth retrofit kit. It isn't cheap but it does come with more than you think. If you purchase this kit it also comes with voice recognition to control just about everything from navigation to your phone. Also make sure to email them to see if your phone is compatible.

I think i might get that from bimmer nav. I had looked at it before myself and it's pretty up to date. Also want a DVD unit. I guess that's expensive if you aren't used to direct plug in units. Most are up in price. Worth it if you are going to keep the car for a while.

its about 17000 miles. previous owner installed a new water pump and intake manifold form what i can see. the navigation unit had to be replaced because the previous owner jump started the car wrong.

the only thing i've replaced were radiator hoses and spark plugs. its a great daily driver. it does however need new window regulators. thats the only thing i dont like about it.

a nice set of large tasteful wheels make one of these look awesome.

as far as parts, a lot of them are less costly than 6 cylinder models.
