Mein Auto: 2010 535i xDrive Manual
New Owner

Hi All. New owner on board

Just picked up 2010 535i xDrive/ Manual transmission, 30K. Premium, Cold & Sport packages - And loving it. I'll be poking around around for wisdom on this site, for a bit I suspect.

Ps. Is the iDrive software upgradeable? Can bluetooth audio be added? Its got phone but no bluetooth streaming audio for music

Congrats on the purchase!! I've had mine for about 3 months and look for reasons to drive it. I even go grocery shopping so I can take the long road home.

If you have the aux input or iPod adapter cable, yes you can add a BT A2DP adapter and stream music. Here are a couple of options from Amazon:

BT music streaming adapter -- charges via USB, output to 3.5mm jack

iPod dock adapter for BT music streaming

I'm using one similar to the second item above, but if I were to do again I would buy the first one. I find that after a phone call to get music streaming again I need to remove the adapter from my car's dock connector and reconnect to reset the connection. BTW, sound quality from iPhone 5 to my BT dock is excellent.

Thanks for sharing! I can't say I've seen a manual E60 before. There are several 545i manuals in the area but they sold slowly because not a lot of people want stick in this car. Thanks for sharing and please show us pics of your V1 install!
