Thx, Steve

You need a better dealer then!, there is a factory kit for bluetooth for an 03 M5.
Maybe someone on the board who has an 03 can post a part number, or you could try one of the mail order dealers like pacific or crevier (both in southern california).

What year is your M5? I had my july 02 build retrofitted for bluetooth by the dealer. They confirmed what has been posted on this board that the factory BT upgrade is dependent on your onboard computer version. sorry, i don't know much more than that.

ard,
i'm still waiting for my bluetooth kit from Aardvark (connects2usa.com). i got an email saying they were delayed.. noone answers their phone either (i didn't leave messages). i just got a couple of Treo 650s (Cingular) and can't wait to integrate them with the M5.

They're not a big outfit, and their office person Michelle is doing double and triple duty by my guess. She's called me back and been quite helpful in my quest (although I haven't gone with BT since I can't give up TDMA)

XrayMD is a long time member/contributor here and is involved with them. He's been more than willing to chat. Drop him a PM and you should connect.

Not a clue as to what is going on with their BT solution- given that the older BMW BT modules had issues, and now with the 4th/5th generation modules there are still the occasional complaint, you can imagine how tricky the first release for a new vendor can be....

The Bluetooth Parts Kit listed below was installed on my '03 M5:

84-11-0-302-647 = Installation Kit

84-21-6-934-552 = Control Unit

One Hour Labor was charged by the BMW Dealership for the Install.



Of course, You will also need a Cell Phone that is Bluetooth compatible.

:cheers:

Spidersense, etc. Sorry...didn't see this thread until today! Argos Bluetooth system is still in the pipeline. Delay has not been on our end but with our manufacturer. We're still hoping for product mid-to-late June. If you want more info, please PM or email me or check the connects2usa.com website.
:cheers:

I bought mine from Circle BMW in NJ. They were much cheaper than even crevier.

Slightly OT, but some moron at Circle refused to sell me the Sirius radio receiver! Even though I asked for it by part number, he insisted I give him the model and year- said since it wasn't listed for the 2003 M5 they will not sell it.

Their choice- saves me having to call NJ! :)

I am using this in an 02 M5.

It works fine.
What phone are you using it with? I have a Treo 650 that I'd like to use. Also, my 02 has the cellphone option. Since I just bought the car, I haven't had a chance to activate it yet. I'd like to use my existing phone instead of having to activate another line.

Yeah, I also has the same problem.

I asked the guy if I could return the part if I had ordered the wrong one. His response was "No". So I told him what did he care if I ordered one. I informed him I knew exactly what I wanted, and he told me no.

Thats the oddest "customer support" I've ever heard. The lost me as a customer for Sirius, but on the other hand if you need a bluetooth module they can't be beat (at least when I bought mine).

In the 02 M5, I use a Motorola V551 with the bluetooth interface. It works great.

I still havent gotten it yet. i have not heard from them on if it is available yet. i will have to call and check.

i have an 12/01 build 2002.

i can't figure out the BMW BT option for my builddate. argos seems easier. but i'm not sure if it will support voice.
