Add Combox to Base 2011 (no MOST bus)

Is this possible?

Technic shared a theory that the RAD2 professional actually did not have pre-amp line level outputs and this seems to be backed up by the fact that with no additional audio options, the RAD2 professional part number is different than if you have any option (SAT, 6FL, etc)

So my car has no MOST bus and looks like the OEM HU can't be recoded.

Does anyone know if 6FL/6VC/6NR can be added? Can another OEM HU be added to the car?

My goals are in order:

BT HFP (HandsFree Profile)
Ipod/USB
BT A2DP (audio streaming profile)

Nice to have
6NR BMW Apps

Some of the newer HU have BT and usb built in .

I wonder if you have one those features are its just not turned on .
There is or was I guy on Ebay selling the new OEM head Units without most BUS for around 325 and the ones with most bus for around 450.
If you have a USB Port on the back of the radio you might already
have the capability for USB and bluetooth its just not turned on and you don't
have a microphone .
This doesn't get you A2DP as far as I know you can only get that with a combox and you must have idrive at the same time.

How does one determine whether or not they have a head unit with BT built in? I pulled my unit but didn't know what to look for.

The seller is no longer there and his web site is down (http://cars-equipment.com/). He doesn't respond at either e-mail address. And there seems to be no other sellers anywhere that would sell this kind of BMW Professional headunit.

Also, AFAIK, this unit is chiefly Euro. No US cars have it from factory.

I believe there will be a usb socket on the back

I believe there will be a usb socket on the back
of the deck if its the new type.
You could also check for the optical lines there to
determine if its most bus or non most bus.
