I got 6NR and BMW Online for my 740Li 2 weeks ago from bimmer-tech.net . Works flawlessly and was relatively easy to install. So just send Patryk a mail and ask him what your retrofit options are.

Did you do the install yourself? What needs to be removed?

I did it myself. You need to remove the trunk trim to change the UHF (bluetooth) unit. Change the usb connector inside the compartment.

I also has to change a wire on the cic(so had to remove it), wire the microphone and bt antenna from trunk to the drivers side as i didnt have those options to begin with. I also had to change a plug on the USB Hub, which is located under the A pillar. a really weird location if you ask me.

But i think every car is different because of the options. It shouldnt take more than a weekend to install the hardware and have the car coded if you ask me.

production date 3/10 on 2011 car?? No Connect Drive either

NOT understanding how this is even possible, but I too was told no go on the Connected Drive. I always thought only production dates of September and beyond got the next years date, not barely into the year.

Is there a law against this practice?? I couldnt find any info about it anywhere.

Anyway...add me to the list of disgruntled customers, especially since all the 325 and 535loaners I get from BMW all have these cool features. Especially, the bluetooth audio from my phones. That is particularly awsome.

I will add that my overall experience with issues and BMW is not good. Its like they really dont care...too big to fail????

I had a software update done 2 weeks ago which to my surprise installed the Connected Drive menu. No BMW apps, though.

So basically if the car doesn't have the hardware or the software is there any current fix all, I assume since this thread started in May, 2011 some quick fix process would be out there?
