Does anyone know any installer in California with this kind of expertise?
It is not only replacing the radio, you need a custom OEM harness for the Combox.
Thanks a lot. I'll check them out.
Visited them (Alexshop) a couple of weeks ago. I wasn't impressed. Same kind of place as anywhere else. Same treatment as anywhere else. Explained them what I wanted to do. They took my VIN and promised to get back to me. Never heard from them afterwards.

So, it is basically back to what I said before. Installing BT into a base car is theoretically "possible", of course, as it is theoretically possible to rebuild 335i into a Boeing 747. But it is a moot point: there's simply no people out there who can do it, and apparently there's no commercial feasibility in the procedure.
