Bluetooth on business radio
« on: January 17, 2018, 11:12:00 PM »
Hi - I have a 2004 (nov first registered) x3 3.0i sport auto with the business radio - have multi function steering wheel and was wondering if this is Bluetooth compatible - can't find any Bluetooth button and when I activate Bluetooth on my s6 nothing happens  - any advice much appreciated

On the centre console armrest ther will be two ways to open it. The cubby at the bottom which may be home to a 6 CD multi changer, and the top compartment which is just under the padded armrest.
See if there is a Bluetooth pairing button in this section.
If so you will have Bluetooth.
Also has it got the pop up screen/ satnav ? ( sorry just re read your post, as said business)
Also google BMW Vin decoder and put your last 7 digits of your Vin in to get the build spec. See if it has Bluetooth phone prep on the list 😀

Ok thanks for your reply - no Bluetooth button on/in console and no joy with doing vin check- any ideas on possible solution? Many thanks

A Parrot System is your best bet - and will work with pretty much anything (unlike the BMW offering) as well as being cheaper.

A few on here have gone with that choice.
