Blue Tooth Audio for E60

I was bored and came across this baby, I was wondering if yall have heard of it and if it actually works. $899 is definitely worth having my iphone streaming without connecting a silly cord. I'm debating on buying it right now

They also make it for Ipods only (cheaper price)

Does the blue tooth audio and also adds internet to your car looks like, and not so expensive.

But this won't let you control the music library through the I-drive right?

SO this will work with my 2008 Business screen? If so I might look at this one instead, as long as its been a good product for you.

My car answer phone with built -in bluetooth, but playing music (pandora ) to this device. But I have Iphone, maybe Droid is less selective, I can't tell this. Iphone shows options how do you want connect your actual phone, when out coming or incoming call.
