E63 / E64 6 Series (2004 - 2010)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Looking to play Pandora on my 05 645ci. Is anything available to allow me to do this?

Easiest retrofit would be an aux input. Make sure you don't already have one in your armrest. Then do a search for aux input. Good luck!

The quickest fix I found since my 06 doesn't have an aux input was this bluetooth receiver/FM transmitter. https://www.bestbuy.com/site/anker-r...E&gclsrc=aw.ds

If you have Aux In in the centre console, then this is what I did: https://www.amazon.ca/SoundBot-SB360.../dp/B00RH29CJO

If not, then you can either add the Aux in cable (if supported by the head unit), or do the BT-FM transmitter as Kirk-B suggested.

One caveat I have found with my FM transmitter is that when I receive a phone call I can't hear the person who called me through the car speakers. But when I make a call or play music through my phone It works through the audio system as expected.

When I make a call my iPhone 7 asks me which output I want to use, "phone, speaker, or my bluetooth/FM transmitter" and I have to select the latter. For some reason it doesn't do this when I receive a call and it just defaults to the normal, as if I didn't have any hands-free option connected.
