It may or may not. Bluetooth/BMW Assist was available as a standalone option or as part of the premium package. You can check the equipment your car has here - www.bmwvin.com

If your SOS button, headliner next to the overhead light controls and sunroof control, is there and not a blank, you should have BT.

My 2011 has it as I purchased the BMW Assist option (no Premium Package). If your car does not have BMW Assist or the package you do not have it.

Mein Auto: 2011 328i
Hi, I have a 2011 328i (build date 4/11) that did not come with Bluetooth. About 6 months ago I was searching different forums trying to figure out how to add it. First I was told I needed to see if the HU was BT compatible, it does have a BT sticker on it. So then I was told I just needed to add a mic and have the HU coded. I bought the mic, wire and connections needed and installed them. Then I had the head unit coded for BT. It didn't work so I gave up. If anyone knows of what I might be missing or need to do, IE a fuse or part?? please let me know. Thanks in advance.

'Bluetooth capability' has different meanings for different folks. A 2011 BMW 'with Bluetooth'
  1. can pair to a mobile phone and make/received telephone calls using the buttons on wheel/radio/iDrive,
  2. but CANNOT inherently provide a Bluetooth audio (music streaming) capability.

You have to have the 6nr combox option

If you do vin check and don't have it bimmertech is one of the
places that will retrofit it.
Also there have been recent threads about the combox retrofit here.

I am just looking for telephone. I have my Ipod working via the bmw cable.

I don't believe a combox is used post 2011.

There are guides to pairing the phone online

There should be a separate book on pairing the phone that came with the car.
