Add bluetooth to 01/2004 X5?

So, from my initial diggings, I seem to have a build in that magical window where the vehicle was prewired for bluetooth as a teaser, but not actually supplied with the module. It has option S640A - AUTOTELEFONVORBEREITUNG - Preparation f tel. installation universal. That kinda rolls off the tongue.

Looking to see if anyone in this build window has attempted grabbing the module, antenna and activating it with software. Drop me a note or post some of your journey.

I hate having buttons I can't use, so I will get this working, but it'll take some digging and sorting out. A long list of mechanical nuances to deal with, but this will happen.

I do not have NAV or DSP - just the standard CD/Radio unit. No trunk CD either.

Daily Drivers:
- 2004 X5 4.4, 01/2004 production, 295,000km
- 2008 535i, 210,000km

- 1996 328i, track/race car, ~300,000km

- 2001 Ski-Doo MXZ 600 w/800 engine, exhaust
- 1978 Ski-Doo Olympique 340 (vintage race sled)

I don't think bluetooth was available as an option or has the ability to be retrofitted in pre-2003 models. There's a few bluetooth threads on here that go over the options available. We have a 2002 and ended up going with a Mediabridge.

--Oops, read your build date wrong. Yes, I'm confident that has been done and there should be at least a thread or two about it.---
