I have searched but it's all very confusing. I have the built-in carphone in my armrest. This is useless to me as (1) it doesn't work with my network and (2) I would have to remove my SIM card whenever I wanted to use it.
I would be vaguely interested in Bluetooth, but the only solution I can see is at http://www.bimmernav.com/store/cata...ro-models-1995upto-0302-mfg-date-item-89.html
, and there's no way I'm paying so much when I can just use a Bluetooth headset in-ear.
So what I want to do is replace my armrest with a non-phone one, and also have the storage space under the armrest (which I do not currently have and would like).
Looking at http://www.realoem.com/bmw/showparts.do?model=DN82&mospid=47549&btnr=51_2267&hg=51&fg=35&hl=79
, do I just need 51167140687 (armrest) and 51168196967 (armrest tray)? It will flip up rather than slide, correct? Or is there more to it than that?
Also, after I remove the phone handset, are there other parts of the phone system in the car that I could remove?
