If you have voice command, I'll assume you also have iDrive? That means you have a mic, but it's more likely connected directly to the CIC than it is to the MULF. If you have phone prep, you can repin the mic in the junction box area from the CIC to direct to the MULF. If you don't have phone prep, you definitely have to run a new wire. It's probably easier to run a new wire either way.

I've personally done my car (328i 2009 no idrive no prep) and one other (335i 2009 idrive don't recall prep) and ran wires for both of them.
Yeah I have idrive pro.. So you just end up running another wire to where the mic is in the roof? Do you get all the options for telephone once you run that wire? With working telephone buton on the wheel and idrive controls? How long did it take you to run that wire and how hard?
