Bad Bluetooth Phone Audio Quality

Hello, everyone.

I've searched but somehow could not find any threads specifically covering my issue.

I recently purchased a CPO 2008 335 as listed on my profile. Absolutely love the car, but I'm receiving numerous complaints from my parents and girlfriend about the quality of the sound while I'm speaking with them over bluetooth.

For reference, I use a Galaxy S3 so I don't think the phone itself is an issue--calls were crystal clear on others' end when in my old car using an aftermarket navi, and I've also been told that the bluetooth in the loaner car I was given sounds almost as clear as that. The loaner car was a 2011 328 with idrive, for reference. I also have iDrive in my car.

Any ideas? Is this an issue, possibly with the mic that can be covered by CPO?

Thanks in advance.

I think the cars are just that way, my voice frequency is too low or something, if my wife is talking the caller can hear her just fine.

would be interested if there was a better quality aftermarket mic available, or if it was upgraded in later model years and could be backported to our older cars

My bluetooth was awful until I figured out to turn off the WiFi of my phone. Somehow having it on and searching for a signal created havoc with the bluetooth.

Really....I must try that. I already set up a service with my local dealership, however since no loaners are available until the 16th. I'll definitely post my findings.
