Thanks Rs2!

Yes I think I got these part numbers from you from another board. Who can I contact to order the bluetooth kit from and how much does it cost? Were you able to install it in your car? Is there any pics on the internet of it?

Thanks again.

Tommy

Can someone post information and/or a link on this so I can educate myself on it a bit? I have heard of Bluetooth technology, but I know very little about it. Please?

The bluetooth kit should work with any bluetooth phone, correct? The inserts are just for charging as I understand it and are optional.

Right, but is it necessary? I. e., can I get everything but the cradle and still have a functional bluetooth system, albeit without the ability to charge or use an external antenna?

I'm asking because I'm loath to give up cupholders (they are nice for long trips) and I don't have either of the phone models listed for the cradle.

Thanks for all the info RS2

I tried emailing some in england before you posted but they said they arent going to get the retrofit kit for another few months. Can you give me a contact that I can email that has this in stock? It should work in our cars over here in the states right?

From what I've read, no, you would not need that part of the kit. You could keep your phone in your shirtpocket (or whereever) and it would transmit through the BT kit.



Edit: Having taken a look at the manual posted above, I could well be wrong. It appears that the mounting kit is necessary to "pair" (i.e., initialize a connection) the phone with the car unit, as well as a couple of other features. I would think one could do this without the unit, but it at least suggests there is some need, at least temporarily, for the mounting kit.

And BMW will release more cradles for other phone models over time.

/RS2
Yes that's what I've heard too, I'm waiting for them to release the snap-in adapter for Siemens S55.

Hmm... nothing for my pre-9/01 build?

Oh well.. not a big deal I guess. Renewed a 1 yr contract w/ ATTWS after I bought the Siemens S46 (which doesn't have bluetooth). Maybe on my '04 car when my lease runs out.

I don't know the exact exchange rate right now but it looks like it's ~ $470 with tax. When you add shipping (first you need to find somebody to do it for you) it'll be around $600. Even with the cost of the Bluetooth phone it still makes it a better option than crappy $800+ Motorola kit we get here now.

Please keep us posted on your progress... I've been using a Jabra bluetooth headset since December. BMWNA really needs to get these kits over here...

What I'm interested in knowing is if there is an in-between kit since US-spec cars are alredy pre-wired. FHopefully they will have another kit to fit the pre-9/01 cars since pre-wiring is already there in the US...

(In Europe, the pre-wiring is optional).

The Euro flucuates around eqaul to the US dollar. A couple of cents either way is whee it normally is.

1 EUR = 1.08281 USD 1 USD = 0.923524 EUR

The dollar has been losing considerable value against the Euro over the past year.

I just ordered a MY2003 330xi that has a mid-March '03 production and April delivery. Is there anything that will be pre-wired for the US version of this vehicle that hasn't already been integrated in previous months? I'm wondering if I'll need the full retro kit mentoined above, or if BMW will have already included some of those components here.

Also, what exactly is included in the retro-kits? Just the phone cradle and power/antenna jack? If so, you'd think there would be a relatively easy hack for this. Maybe the bluetooth technology is already built into the OBC.. ?

Thanks for any insight.

I second that. Anyone have an email for them?

While we're on the subject, can we safely assume the post 2002 kit will work on a 2004 car?

Thanks.

There was a post on another board (E39?) that pointed out that you need the Bluetooth install set up (initialized) in the car, and the software to do so, is NOT available in the US yet.

Interesting, this goes against the experience of the person who installed it.

Anyone actually install it yet without having it coded or activated? Oh, and have it work.

I know this is an old post, but has their been a resolution to this question? I have a 99 328i (e46) and I don't see why this kit wouldn't work in my car. Any thoughts?

Also has anyone tried using the Kyocera 7135 with the BT adapter?
