Is this the one where you can stream music from your phone over Bluetooth?

Do you have 6FL and the USB socket in the arm rest?

Just had a look in the BMW configurator, and this is how it describes it:

" Enhanced Bluetooth phone functionality
0.00

Enhanced Bluetooth telephone functionality includes hands-free equipment, connection for charging and outside aerial."


6FL is the option code for the USB in the arm rest - interestingly BMW don't seem to list the option codes against the descriptions on their site any more.

Looks like what you have is the 'normal' Bluetooth phone kit (Bluetooth connectivity, roof mounted aerial, phone cradle in arm rest)

At a guess I'd say it applies to cars fired with the ComBox which, as coopersim says, will give you music streaming over Bluetooth

I think, but please do not quote me, the enhanced bit is that you can use the voice recognition function on the steering wheel to dial numbers so you don't take your hands off the wheel whilst driving.

As I say I think that's what it refers to, however I stand to be corrected.

My Voice dial always worked well, that is untill Coopers Norwich done a software update on the car last NOV and It hasnt worked at all since then, all they do is blame BMW Germany for the software download and say they are waiting for a fix !!
