Why would you need anything. My 05 came with everything installed. With your bluetooth card in hand Just follow the instructions.

The 06 doesn't have (or need) a pairing button, only the 03 and older with the Visteon BT module do.

The voice recognition module is an option, and not required to use the BT you already have in your 06 X5.

I dosen't say you need anything. In fact it says "The only option you need to
purchase is the Voice Recognition (VR) module," It's an option. But as Jeff said on a 2006 it is not required

I realize I'm thick but if it says "the only option you NEED to purchase is the VR module", than to me that means I NEED to puchase it.

Please dont met wrong, I'm happy NOT to spend money..

But I read that option as necessary..

So, since I dont have a manual, would someone kindly walk me through the steps:
A) I get in car with my Bluetooth enabled phone
B) Does the vehicle somehow recognize that the phone is in range?
C) A call comes in.. Do I (without having installed any options ie V) simply press the R/T to receive/talk..?
D) How do I integrate the phone book in the phone with the steering wheel controls..

I'm sure that this would typically be a RTFM magnet, but please give me a little break, since I dont have one..

Thanks
ED

Once again the VR module is NOT NEEDED.
Just follow the instructions.

1. Enable Bluetooth on your phone (this is phone-specific)

2. Press the R/T button on the steering wheel. The vehicle will

ask you for the Bluetooth passkey. Enter the passkey that is located on the
white laminated sheet that came with your BMW. (note: it should also be
located on the Assist/Bluetooth module as well)

3. The phone will pair with the vehicle and you will get the following
message displayed on the phone: "BMWXXXX" (BMW & the last 5 digits of your VIN).




Pairing is a one-time activity, so after this the phone will automatically

pair and update the address book every time you enter the vehicle. There
is a maximum of 4 devices that can be paired with the BMW Bluetooth ULF.
After a fifth device is paired it will bump off the first one paired (FIFO).
