E83 - 2005 - what are the options for DAB and AUX ?

Hi all,

Ive got a 2005 E83 - German ver, left hand drive - looking for options for DAB and AUX [preferably the seemless type].

These are the factory options that already are installed :

-6 x cd changer in the armrest
-bluetooth module for telephone [phone also installed in armrest but not in use]

Thanks for all input

I bought a bluetooth aux adapter off ebay, just the BMW aux pins with a standard bluetooth adapter in there. Wires in 10 mins, does the job.

Dab I'm not worried about as I only listen to 5 live and the reception is excellent.

I have fitted the BMW DAB retrofit kit and a GROM USB media solution that replaces the 6CD changer.
It allows me to play music via USB stick, iPod and has the option of Bluetooth streaming but I haven't bought that part yet.
