Quick questions guys; I have a 06 e90 and for some reason my phone button connection doesn't work? Last owner told me its Bluetooth ready but stupid me never tried it before giving him the money ? I use my phone a lot and also always on the go. Any ideas/options?

This is one of the cons im afraid.
There is "Bluetooth equiped" and "Bluetooth Ready"

If your car is "Bluetooth Ready", it dosent actually have Bluetooth.
its just got the buttons etc.

I got hit with the same thing on mine. Have the buttons, and was told "Bluetooth Ready" but need to have it retrofitted.

Went with a Parrot MKi9100 instead. cheaper and more functions.

I'm new to this retrofit thing. I just bought an 06 e90 one. I think it is Bluetooth READY. Cuz I have all the phone button on the radio, and on the steering wheel. But I cant pair my phone with the radio. Is there any DIY of how to retrofit or installing the bluetooth on this e90?

P/S: How can I positive sure that my car is BLUETOOTH READY, not BLUETOOTH EQUIPPED?

Yea I have all the buttons and the DIY says to hold the phone button on the steering wheel but it doesn't work -_- I think I held mine for 10minutes and it still didn't work. Sooo yea i think we gotta get ours retrofitted. I might go with what xPETEZx said
