Adding Bluetooth

How do you add Bluetooth to a 2006 m3 ZCP with nav.? All I have is the SOS on rear view mirror.

If you have SOS you already have bluetooth.

You need to find the pin # which should be in your manual stack, one booklet will be for the phone system. If you are missing that, the pin is labeled on the SOS/Bluetooth module in your trunk. It will require pulling the driver trunk panel back. It will be the silver module box at the top of the NAV drive stack. You'll see the bluetooth logo and a 4-digit pin or PK: xxxx. 2005 and up are all standard with Bluetooth if SOS is installed. Older SOS equipped cars had bluetooth labels but supposedly the bluetooth didn't function.

Bluetooth pairing is only done in the first 2 minutes of ignition position 2. Have your phone in pairing search mode and turn your car to position 2. Wait a bit and you'll see it detect the BMWxxxx or "hands free" module. Pair with your PK code.

hi!
as your car is recent, there might be already a harness for telecommunication module, it's located in the trunk rear left side.
get a ULF module, or a TCU w bluetooth, and it's done.
(get the most recent revision of the module to be ensured that your phone is compatible with).
get also a phone craddle to get a oem clean pairing button . (craddle need to be connected to the harness located under the hand brake console)
plug it.
to pair the phone, push the pairing button on the craddle for 3sec, keep it pushed, turn the ignition on (don't start the car), keep it pushed for 3 sec more and release it. and bluetooth pairing step should be coming...

2005 and later should have a combo bluetooth BMW assist module. Like said above, get the pk number. IF you don't have a pairing button, you can still pair a phone without one. I put a DIY out there. PM me if you need help.

Glad you didn't start a search for a $200+ module and supporting components when you already had it in the car.
