Smile Bluetooth handsfree in my BMW E53 X5 2003

I have a recently bought my X5. Now I want to add handsfreeand Bluetooth streaming Music.

Yes. Get yourself an aftermarket Android head unit. It's some of the best money I've spent on my X. Gives you blue tooth streaming, access to apps and GPS. If you have a business radio the installation is pretty simple. I would recommend the Avin Avant 4. A number of us on here have put them in. Since you have DSP you'll need the IBUS app and dongle. The IBUS is good to have even if you don't have DSP, it gives you access to everything in the OBC. You can copy all your CD's to a micro Sd card and plug it into the hidden port in the unit and all your music is there for you.

Dont get an aftermarket head unit, they look ghetto and ruin the original layout. Get the Bluebus unit, it'll be far superior.

They don't look "ghetto". They look just like a factory Nav head unit. Does the factory Nav look "ghetto"?

I Think it look awesome. I Think I will get one. Just have to figure out wich features to add. Is there a mic in the unit or you have to order one??

It comes with a mic, but you can also order one in case you want to position it closer to your head. The mic it comes with is in the front of the head unit.

To the OP, what are you looking to gain?
JUST Bluetooth and handsfree? Then get the BlueBus. Search for it on this forum

if you want the NAV screen, then do an aftermarket but be careful of which you choose to work with your DSP and make sure it looks proper in the dash as some of them look like shit.
