Looking to add Bluetooth, Sirius and ConnectedDrive to my car - possible?

I just got a 2011 M3 Convertible.. it has iDrive/Navigation/USB port in the armrest where I can plug in my iPhone using the white OEM iphone cable and works fine.. but the car is missing bluetooth, Sirius, and the connected drive apps. Here is a list of what my car has:

S563A LICHTPAKET Light package
S609A NAVIGATIONSSYSTEM PROFESSIONAL Navigation system Professional
S620A SPRACHEINGABESYSTEM Voice control
S676A HIFI LAUTSPRECHERSYSTEM HiFi speaker system
S693A SATELLITENTUNER VORBEREITUNG Preparation BMW satellite radio
S697A AREA-CODE 1 Area-Code 1 for DVD
S6FLA USB-AUDIO-SCHNITTSTELLE USB/audio interface
S6UHA TRAFFIC INFORMATION Traffic Information
S6VCA STEUERUNG COMBOX Control, Combox
S8SCA LAENDERSPEZ. TELESERVICEFREISCH. Telematics access request,country-spec.
S8SPA COP STEUERUNG Control unit COP
S8TLA TAGFAHRLICHT FRONT UND HECK AKTIV Dummy-SALAPA
S8TNA TAGFAHRLICHT UEBER LICHTMENUE EINST Dummy-SALAPA
S925A VERSANDSCHUTZPAKET Dispatch protection pack

What all will I need to add bluetooth, sirius and the connected drive apps?

I do have the Ediabas cable on the way now... I'm somewhat familiar with how this works as I did a lot of coding on my Audi in the past.

Thanks in advance!

The sirius is pretty easy, just pay the dealer and they'll activate it. Last I heard it was around $600-800. Your car already has all the parts it just has to be activated.

The bluetooth is a little harder, not sure what you need there.

Most of the hardware is all there, what you need is:

- Sirius FSC
- BMW Apps FSC
- Antenna for Bluetooth
- Microphone rewiring for Bluetooth

Contact forum vendor BimmerTech for a one-stop activation of all this.

Thanks - I've emailed bimmertech but haven't received a response yet..

Regarding the Microphone for Bluetooth - I do have voice control.. does the bluetooth share this same voice control microphone, or is it a seperate mic?

Just a follow-up - BimmerTech did a great job activating the Sirius and Bluetooth.. he sent me a kit with the bluetooth antenna and OBDII cable, i had it within 3 days.. another 30 minutes or so of remote coding and all is well. I'd highly recommend him.

Thanks again!

Patrys are you still doing Sirius activation?

I just need the FSC and remote coding, or instructions on coding and I can do myself.

I emailed you last week

+1 on this. Need to add Sirius to my X5. Dealer wanted $800 for the $375 module plus "4 hours of expertise work" to get it done...lol
