So Phunk, Tell Us What You've Got

I know you've been busy modding the damn thing, but tell us what you've got (or had).

Do you have the Sport package?

Do you have AS?

Any news on Bluetooth?

Have you registered with Owner's Circle, so that you can send e-mails directly to BMW NA and get a supposedly guaranteed response within 24 business-day hours?

What have you done to the car, and when? Have you put on the new wheels yet? Lowered it? When does the muffy get put on?

And what are you going to do with all the spare (stock) parts?

well so far

wheels is about it, holidays and all.

My SSK and muffler are being installed as we speak and I am awaiting a call to come pick her up.

Tomm in the AM, I take her into the dealer to get my Idrive updated for BT.

Hey Mal, what can I say to them to make sure they give me the entire latest SW?

Should I say that my Idrive is glitchy so they have a reason to upgrade the sw?

whats the latest version I should have in a 645?

Im sure I have generation 1 in it now as I have a sep 03 build date. Do you think when they add the bt option to my sw, that they automatically give me the latest sw or is the bt just a module of the software leaving everything else unchanged.

Phunk, what have you done? You have the oldest E63 you could have gotten. I've attached a TIS bulletin that explains in paragraph #4 what u face. Software only will not get you Bluetooth. U are looking at close to $2000 to get new TCU installed. Dealer should have told you this. But u should get a complete CIP upgrade and probably to 19.02.03., but anything at 19.01.00 or higher will be the same to you.

Bummer, Phunky. There is good news / bad news in Cobradav's post, although the good news is just a glimmer.

The good news stems from the fact that the dealer is apparently going to download you new software (and note you should try to get at least 19.01 and, if possible, 19.02.03 or 20.01) specifically for the purpose of getting Bluetoothed. (The Service manuals from Cobradav say this is a cost you must bear.) The bad news is that it won't work. The good news is that when it doesn't work you should tell the dealer you don't want to pay for what won't work, and the dealer will probably agree. However, if the dealer wakes up and tells you this before the download, you've got a dilemma.

And, of course, you have to decide if you want a TCU mod for what Cobradav says is 2 large.

I look forward to seeing photos of your other mods. I hope they come out well. Please tell us what happens.

Continued good luck!
