Post 2006 E90 CIP Upgrade

Hello everyone,

I'm looking to enable some additional/updated functionality on my '06 E90 (325i). Specifically, I'd like to get DRL's activated for my angel eyes and I'd also like to be able to stream from my iPhone to my car system via bluetooth.

Are these two available with an upgrade of my CIP from my local dealer? Does anyone on this forum know how to do it?

I don't think you will find solutions at your dealer

I don't think you will find solutions at your dealer.
Well they could recode your DRL's probably.
But you could possibly do the lights with a coding setup.
And some other cool stuff to .
For the audio upgrade if you are wanting A2DP Bluetooth streaming
A Dension gateway 500s Bluetooth or a Mobridge unit will work.
This will also give you USB and iPod capability's.
And its digital input unlike the BMW retrofit for that year or the aftermarket
adapters that go through the aux port.
There is no A2DP retrofit from the dealer for cars older than 2011 I believe
unless something has changed.




The cheap solution for Bluetooth streaming is a plug in adapter like
Blackberry gateway or one of the other numerous ones that go through
the aux input.

You can't code AE as DRL on your car. You need to upgrade your FRM module to at least FRM 2, then you can code the AE as DRL. Or you can also buy a wiring harness to operate the AE as DRL but I've heard of issues with that kit. I just had someone stop by to remove that kit and code his car for AE as DRL becuase the kit was throwing a voltage fault in his DME. The kit is triggered by a circuit in the DME.

I use a blackberry stereo gateway for blue tooth streaming.
