Combox but no ConnectedDrive?

Hey guys first BMW M3 owner here (I had a 2002 for the summer of 2000, loved it!)

I have an 11 AW M3 DCT, build date 09/06/2010. It has a combox listed on the build sheet, and I can indeed stream Audio via BT from my Galaxy S IV.

I found the bluetooth sw update page from the bmw site, and downloaded all of them, I tried the SW update via USB stick but none of the firmwares look like they are for my car.

I have read that there may be some cars that didn't have all the components installed during the initial build out of the ConnectDrive offering.

I have two questions:

1. Which SW update do I need for BT Audio (I may not need it at all since it seems to be working with my phone?)

2. Is the ConnectedDrive just a SW update that I can get from one of the coders here, or is there a module that needs to be installed?

I have searched and found many answers to all my other questions, but these are my last two.

If you're already pairing/streaming from your phone then you already have BT audio. As far as Connected Drive goes, it is not a simple software update but a coding setup that would need to be performed. If you're interested, feel free to PM.
