New Owner - 2011 Space Gray E90 M3

Hi. I'm Brandon and this is my 2011 E90 M3.

I bought her yesterday after months of searching and seeing potential cars sell to other people. It's a huge accomplishment for me. I've been driving a 2004 Camry for the last 6 years (which I still love). I couldn't be happier with this car. One owner car that was very very well taken care of w/ tech and premium packages.

Only things I don't like are:
- Wood trim (If anybody wants to trade their carbon trim, lmk)
- USB doesn't support my iPhone X (typical but fixable)
- Bluetooth only for making calls (again, fixable)

Other than that, everything is perfect and just how I wanted.

If anybody has a way to fix the USB/Bluetooth issues, please lmk before I take it to a BMW tech place. Trying to figure out if I need my iDrive updated.

I have big things planned for it and I'm happy to finally be an owner of one of these cars.

Follow me on IG: @954MM / @954M3









UPDATE: PUT SOME SWIFT SPRINGS ON:

Congrats on the pick up !

BTW, I use an aukey br-c8 that I got as a present works great. Tune2air works better since you get to use factory steering wheel controls, heard that one might be better. Allows you to make phone calls and listen to your music via Bluetooth !

Congrats! Confused on your USB/Bluetooth issues.. you should be able to play audio via bluetooth. However in regards to USB, if you are connected via Bluetooth, the system disables bluetooth audio on the device when you plug it in to USB.

Ive tried that =/ Doesnt work man. Its such a pain. Cause auxiliary audio is TERRIBLE! I found a guy who can install it for me if needed. Also dont think original owner ever updated the iDrive. I wanna take it to BMW but I dont want my wallet to get raped

Have you done a vin check to see if yours came equipped with a combox? If so, then it should do BT audio. If it didnít, you can buy it separately

Just to confirm - you tried to go in to your phones bluetooth profile in iDrive and make sure that Audio is selected?

I have a 2011 as well and bluetooth streaming works great for me and my iPX. Plugging the phone into the USB in the armrest works for too however as the other member mentioned, I did have to manually re-enable bluetooth audio after I did that.

Boo that stinks, BT audio is important to me as well. BT audio for the M3 came out in mid-late 2011. Build dates from September 2010 the combox became available. You can retrofit it if you're willing to pay but itís damn expensive. You can also get the tune2air, Iíve read that it sounds pretty good.

Yeah my car was built May 2010 but my friends E90 has tune to air and its amazing. So I opted for that and then I'll do the retrofit in the future. Looking to do the OEM Exhaust mod in the next week or two. Getting spacers for free (15 all around but idk whats the best size to go for a flush fitment) and $100 swift springs from a friend.
