Hi;
Brand new to the forums - Greetings to all.
I have a 2004 530i ( Build date is July 2004) which has the mic , phone symbol on the steering wheel. Is there a cheap option in Toronto to get this car bluetooth enabled?
Thanks guys

Doh - I was hoping to find some answers. I'm also looking. It's possibel your car doesn't have the Bluetooth hardware. The steering wheels are the same regardless of that option.

From what I gather so far, check out Dice Electronics. I think it's a reasonable price.

More on Bluetooth for 2004 530i

Hello All;
After doing some reading it appears that as per BMW Service Bulletin SIB84 13 04 dated March 2005 all E60s with a build date from 3/04 to 8/04 can have the Bluetooth functionality added by updating the vehicle software using CIP 13.2 or higher and then doing Retrofit of Tel Bluetooth (which also appears to be like a software update). Has anyone in the Toronto area got this done and also, if any of our site sponsors (RMP etc.) can do this?
Thanks,

I have the same car and production time. Got it done last week by bimmersport. Software update only, no additional hardware needed. The bluetooth now works like a charm.
