BMW never offered an OEM HD Radio tuner retrofit for the pre-2009 iDrive. You could get the parts and do it yourself -it has been done- but it is very labor intensive, complicated, and not inexpensive for what it is.

I have a 2008 M3 sedan (pre-iDrive refresh), and it has HD radio as a factory option.
