Valid point.

I can't remember, does premium have an aux input in the console? If it does, you can use a Blackberry Music Gateway (search in the audio section of the forum), and it will allow you to stream music. I used to have a flag for a very nice photo post of someone's setup, I'll try to find it.

Edit: Read through this thread, it will help explain the set up: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...+Music+Gateway

If you decide to go with it, I think I have my old parts, which I'll sell you at a good discount (I upgraded to the Combox, so I don't need the old set up anymore).

I was looking to do this without buying aftermkt parts...even a VW Jetta has this bluetooth feature now without hooking up the phone to anything...will let you stream from your iphone from ipod, pandora, spotify and etc...no need for any wires...guess bmw doesnt haver this feature yet.

BMW has it now (BMW apps), but didn't have it during your model year. I have a 2011, and had to add the newer components, then have the car coded for the components.

It's a shame, cause like you mention, it's commonplace now. I think even a Chevy cruze has the feature, at least as an option.

Unfortunately this is the way of the world now though. "Comfort access" is automatic (and has been) with anything but the basest Nissans, yet its some special add in our cars. Air conditioned driver seats come standard in a Hyundai Genesis (have for some time), yet its not even an option in the 1er and 3er BMWs and has historically been a 3500-5000 dollar add to the 5s. Now at least it's down to 500 for the newer 5s. This alone was about an inch away from causing me to buy an isF. I'm glad I got the d, but every time I get into my wife's x5, im reminded that the diesels not quite perfect.

Hmmm interesting my 2011 has Bluetooth connectivity for audio streaming (which we use for both android and iPhone)...and I didn't upgrade or change anything just took it for granted....

Sprint has unlimited data too, however most of the time my connection is too crappy for even streaming audio.

Works fine for Spotify with locally-synched playlists though, but sometimes the display information doesn't change when it goes to the next song. Not sure if that's a bug with the spotify app, or BMW's software.

Also I stream podcasts using Downcast. I never listen to the radio anymore.

Streaming bluetooth audio requires the combox option which I believe started around October 2010 production for the 2011 model year.

I bought a bluetooth streaming device for 60.00 on Amazon made by Belkin...works great...hooks up easy using 3.5mm jack and gets power via lighter plug.

Only negative is sound quality is just ok...no bass what so ever....but convenient.

Actually you would be surprised by how much tracks vary. After making many runs you will find how remarkably consistent the vbox is. Sometimes I can even pick out differences between the drag strip lanes. As far as slopes...mine is within .16% which is flatter than many drag strips. I was going to start doing some more 1/4 mile work....but after just hsving the EGR recall...the car feels very weak. I confirmed it with the vbox...as the car only traps 97mphto now. Its crazy. I should have refused the recall. Has anyone else experienced reduction of power post-recall?
