Bluetooth retrofit w/ combox

So after hours of searching I can't seem to find any details on retrofitting bluetooth into a car that already has Nav, 6FL, voice assist, and a combox. I bought my 2011 335i (mfg date 09/2010) used and never missed having bluetooth until I took my car in for the VANOS recall and drove a loaner F30 with BT for a few days and really got used to it. I have confirmed I have a combox, but am missing the BT antenna. All the retrofit guides I find are either for cars with TCU and MULF, or retrofitting a combox into an older car.

Is it as simple as adding a BT antenna and coding the car? Will the voice assist mic function for BT as well?

Thanks in advance.

Contact forum vendor BimmerTech for the parts and coding required for Bluetooth and 6NR features...

Maybe get a new HU with bluetooth will solve the problem. Take a look at

Its a matter of adding a bt antenna (you can add that in your boot), coding the car and running the wire to roof module for a mic and adding a mic.
If you have voice functions (620) then you already have a mic.
You are across the pond, otherwise I could have helped you more.
