Question Is the E90 330i Pre-Wired for Bluetooth in the U.S?

I have a question for people with E90 330 with NAV.
Do you know if the car arrives to the U.S prepared for a Bluetooth upgrade (pre-wired)?
There are two retroifits out there and one is for a prepared (pre-wired) car:

According to the E90 Information dealer trainer, all US cars are prewired for bluetooth phone support, hence the reason all US cars have the shark fin!
Not sure if the kit can be ordered yet, plus REALOEM.com is not a function place to order, good for part numbers and ignore prices! Try Circle BMW in NJ, they are cheap and helpful!

good luck finding a solution

me too have the same problem. I've ordered without bluetooth and make me regret

just wondering if the car is pre-wired with bluetooth, howabout the integration with idrive? do you need extra tweak for the software bit to integrate?

I've asked for how much it will cost me to install the BT and the stealership told me about $300 Cad... but wasn't sure as the unit was not available in Canada due to the system being reprogrammed from German to English.

This is the reply I got from my dealer:
"Milan passed on that email you sent him from ***** ******** regarding Bluetooth. I checked his VIN, he doesn't have BMW Assist, so he can't have Bluetooth. I've spoken to BMW about this, those retrofit kits will not work in Canada. I know they're working on getting some thing available but BMW does not have an ETA for when any installation kits will be available for the E90s."
So I guess i have to wait.
