The part number on my failed unit is 84 21 6-965406-01
There are a few on ebay that say suitable for E90 but the part numbers don't match - does anybody know if I have to get the exact same part number or will any BMW bluetooth unit work ?
I have the same problem as u. BMW will give me a new control unit at £420. Totally stupid money. There is no other way round it. My local indy bmw guy told me he has seen several control units go in e90s and there are 2 types. 1 is £250 and the other is £420.
So thats that then. What im looking at now is having an aftermarket blutooth fitted that will sync in with the cars controls and look invisible. Im not prepared to pay £420.
My guy said dont even think of buying one of ebay as it could go in the next week/month.
Sucks. there must be a cheaper work around.
