Who say's you can't have a factory BMW Bluetooth module in older model cars!  I put this in around 2004 and it has worked perfect with every model phone I've had since.  The Bluetooth module gives you all convenience of hands free dialing, steering wheel controls, dial from nav screen and so on.

Tools required:

  • Phillips head screwdriver

  • 10MM Socket / Ratchet or Wrench

  • Zip Tie

  • Coat hanger to fish a cable or 2

**I am currently using a Blackberry 9800 and iPhone with this setup, and it works great.**

I was told I sound very far away when talking, so I swapped micro phone and sunroof switch positions.  I had to shave off some of the plastic to get the sunroof switch to fit, they are not exactly the same size:
