Bluetooth audio on '11 e90 no iDrive

Is it possible to retro fit so that I can stream music via Bluetooth? I can hook up my phone for calls via Bluetooth but not audio. Is this possible.

Or at the very least, I want to be able to use the white apple USB cord to connect my music.

You need the combox to have bluetooth audio. Combox started coming with Sept. 2010 production depending on the options on the car. Pre-Sept 2010 = no combox = no BT audio. There are folks offering the combox upgrade if you want it...

The OEM HU does not support the retrofit of the Combox.

Combox = Bluetooth Audio = Apple USB cable

For Bluetooth audio streaming, you need to have a Combox Media retrofit. You can PM me your VIN, and I'll let you know how you can go about this retrofit.
