Can my 06/09 production year E92 be retrofitted for Bluetooth?

My cars production date is 06/09
I have the following relevant options:

S620A Voice control
S609A Navigation system Professional
S676A HiFi speaker system
S693A Preparation BMW satellite radio
S6FLA USB/audio interface

What would I need to retrofit bluetooth capabilities to my car? Is it even possible?

And if I can't get it working through bluetooth, is there a way to use the cars audio/microphone for phone calls using the ipod connector in my armrest?

Thanks guys! I tried searching the forums but everyone has a different setup

There are only 3 different OEM Bluetooth setups (OEM HU, TCU and MULF), and yours has been done several times already... http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=660738

swop the mic wiring behind the glovebox

Oh wow...that seems much easier than I expected.
So I don't need "S640A Preparation for telephone installation, Universal"? I was worried because I heard car built after 03/09 couldn't be retrofitted this easily.
I'll pull up my trunk tonight and see if everything looks good.

Thanks!

If I have voice control already do I need to repin the mic wires in the glovebox? The link posted by Technic says no (post 18) but Snoozee says yes?

Follow the install link above except the MULF install -your MULF is already installed. You need the existing microphone wired directly to the MULF and the BT antenna. You do not need to place the antenna inside the car either... you can place it besides the MULF in the trunk.

Then you code it.

You will need to check your existing wiring for mic. Check if pins 1, 19, 21 on MULF is already taken up. If yes then you need to repin. If slots are empty, then you need to run a new mic wire. Since you have voice control, chances is the wire is there and you need to repin.
