E87 Bluetooth/Music options?

Recommended Posts

Hey all

Have just spent the last thirty minutes searching, if the question has been answered somewhere else please link.

I have a 2010 118d E87 and am trying to get bluetooth connectivity for audio - not just phone calls. To do this in the past with other vehicles I have managed to find a module on the internet that plugs into one of the inputs in the rear and a 12V feed. The stereo then just thinks it's a CD stacker or something, and when the car starts up it automatically connects to my phone for music, and fields phone calls as well with an integrated mic that you mount somewhere in the cabin.

Does anyone know of such a product for my car? I do have 3.5mm AUX input under the centre console. The stereo currently connects just fine via bluetooth to my phone for phonecalls only.

Also - any tips on removing the existing radio?

Have removed it all fine, no sweat. Still having trouble finding an appropriate bluetooth module. Theres always this sort of option;

But I don't have high hopes that it will be all that good.

I have a new shipment of Bluetooth modules arriving this week, ive installed one in an E87 similar to yours and it works great, no need to remove your factory stereo as the BT Modules integrated directly with the factory stereo and steering wheel.

PM if you want more info :-)
