OEM BMW Assist/Bluetooth TCU (free coding included!)
1 Attachment(s)
EDIT: (Let me be more specific, this is an "IBUS" module which will work on e46, e39, e85 etc..., NOT ON THE NEW "MOST" based vehicles)

This is a 2004 TCU with bluetooth. It does work, as I had it in my car with a Windows Phone 7.5 telephone and it fully downloaded the phonebook properly and quickly.

The only issue with this module is that it does not include Voice Recognition and from time to time the bluetooth doesn't auto-connect when you get in the car, so you have to click connect on the phone manually. Other than that, it works well. You can make and receive calls, with the caller ID number coming up on your nav unit, or business cd, and if that number is in your phone book the name will show up.

This will work with OEM NAV and BUSINESS CD. I will guarantee that I can code your VIN into the car and set it up to connect to your phone. If I am unable to do this for whatever reason, I'll give you back your money.

$260 OBO.
$300 Flat, if you want me to code other features on your car.

To get this to work you will need the OEM wiring which your car should have, if it's a 2005, and might have if it's older, you should check. To check, take out the cup holders and coin pocket and see if there is wiring in there. It will be wrapped in cloth and stuffed towards the rear ashtray, down under the handbrake. If you're not sure, I'm happy to help, just ask.

Also you will need these two items:

(I purchased both from Mike @ Maranello BMW, last year.)

1.) Dual Array Microphone

2.) Bluetooth Antenna

There may be a few other things required (depending on your vehicle).
My installation was for a 2001 E39 and I needed the following parts:

BLUETOOTH MIC: 84 31 6 938 762
BLUETOOTH ANTENNA: 84 50 6 928 461
SES JUMPER: 84 11 0 018 038
25 TO 54 PIN CABLE: 84 12 0 308 375
ANTENNA CABLE: 61 12 0 137 616

Price Drop.

$200 with coding.

Bump - $100 with coding included, you just need a mic and antenna from the dealer or ebay.

If my '04 E46 M3 has been pre-wired I'll take it!

Take out the coin tray and stick your hand down there to see if you have a bundle of wores there wrapped in fabric

I will check when I get home tonight. Cross your fingers.

Idrive didn't exist in 2004.
This will work on any ibus equipped vehicle which is wired for it.

BMWNTHZST 03-04-2015 06:28 PM

Dam! My car isn't pre-wired.


The-Traveler 03-05-2015 10:53 AM

Yep it was rare. Mine wasn't either, I ended up retrofitting the wiring harness out of a fully loaded M3, and I took the NAV, bluetooth and everything from it.

The pre-wiring in Canada was more common MY2005+.
