Retrofit bluetooth audio with only 6VC

Hi guys. i've got an e92 335d -11, but with some wierd options. I have the media combox but no bluetooth option at all.

Is there a way to retrofit this?

Prod. date. 2011-06-06

Options:
6FL USB/Audio interface
6UH Traffic Information
6VC Control for Combox
609 Navigation system Professional


I read somewhere that you can just add the bluetooth antenna (and even more if you want handsfree), and then code it in.

I have INPA with cable.

So the questions is..
What parts do i need?
Is it even possible?
What coding should i do and is it enough with INPA?


Thanks for your help!

Sorry if my english is bad, //swedish bmwfan

you can code bluetooth even without antenna
coding can be done using ncsexpert from bmw standard tools(inpa) or using ista-p as retrofit coding
but if you want guaranteed reception and handsfree calling then you'll need to add mic and bluetooth antenna

A quick search on ebay found this. This kit would get you all the hardware. May want to send the seller an email and ask for the instructions.

You aren't getting bluetooth audio without a headunit that supports A2DP even if you have a Combox.

I'm assuming you don't have Navigation?

there is two ways of the coding
1. direct parameter change in modules (CIC and MEDIA in this case)
2. reading VO, adding option code, (644 and maybe 7SP) and code CIC and MEDIA
you do not need to write VO to cas or nfrm, this function is only needed if you bring car to dealer and he can upgrade software and recode car according VO during maintenance

Wich option is the best/simpliest?

Do i just need to add these two options to VO and write to CIC and MEDIA and it will work? If thats the case, im sooo happy

you cannot write VO to cic and media, but you can code them using modified VO

Did this add bluetooth streaming? I have a 06 330i, with the professional radio and bluetooth phone, and the standard cabled aux input. Phone works perfect, but would like to make it stream music. Would the above steps accomplish this? I cant remember if those options are in my VO or not off the top of my head.

you need idrive to get bluetooth streaming via factory module
otherwise you need mulf2high retrofit with tune2air add-on or dension gateway 500 module
