hmm thats weird that your car does not have bluetooth with all the other options that you have. What year is your car? If it is the older i-drive unit go to your trunk and look for this where the spare should be (remove the cover and should be close to the back of the seats

should have these icons on the module for bluetooth

It is possible to retrofit the Bluetooth in your car.
At least BimmerTech and its authorized dealers can do it for you

BimmerTech --
would the retrofit solution offer complete integration with the iDrive that is installed in the car? What can I expect to spend?

works pretty good for bluetooth streaming audio. and its only $35. Only issue, as noted in the amazon reviews, is you have to turn it on everytime you get in your car. wish it would turn on by itself. my car comes with bluetooth handsfree. the bluegate does not interfere with the bmw handsfree. calls still come in through the idrive, music comes through the bluegate.
