Unfortunately no. BMW phones are made especially for BMW and have a different interface. The only thing you might be able to do is get a bluetooth kit for your car, then your razer will work among many other phones.

In my 2004i I was able to use my Motorola V551 in the cradle. It had the same connetions as the V60 so I gave it a try. It works just fine. I'm able to dial from the external keypad, it reads the phonebook, lets me know when I have voicemails, charges it. When I am receiving calls it mutes the radio, I can hear my MP3 ringtone and I can answer it from the steering wheel. So far everything works great.

Pwned,

The V551 is a little bigger than the V60. I didn't have to modify anything except remove the black spacer, if you have a phone with a thicker battery. It is a tight fit on the sides. The phone has to be put in with the flip open and you have to make sure the phone is sitting properly on the contacts. Once that is done, close the flip and your good to go . You will know it's in, when it says reading data. I also tried a regular V60 and that worked too.

will it include the 330i (2004)? We did the BMW phone solution, and while it works ok, the phone is pretty old technology, as phones go. I can't even figure out how to sent a text msg on this V60?? any info on a bluetooth solution would be most welcome. i've been told by BMW that this car has a phone system built in for the roadside assistance, so i can't insall bluetooth. maybe there's hope??
