2004 X3 Bluetooth Retro w/BMW Assist

I new to the board so forgive me if there is an answer out there. I want to add Bluetooth to my 2004 X3 manufactured May 2004 with BMW Assist. I have searched for the answer, at the dealer today the solution is to install:

2005 Telematics (TCU) 84 10 6 963 798 List $1,754.50
Control Unit 84 21 6 934 552 $435.00
E83 ULF Ret 84 11 0 391 531 $192.50
Adapter 84 21 0 307 726 $125
Eject box 84 21 6 946 064 $90.75
Insert 51 16 3 401 961 $59.95

Not an inexpensive venture, but I should end up with Bluetooth, voice cammand, cradle/charger for the phone (Treo 650), and my Nav should still work along with BMW Assist.

Has any one tried it or am I the only person foolish enough to consider it, will Sirrus work with the configuration and what about Ipod intergration?

Please let me know.

Thanks
PAC

That seems like way too much to me. Check with Randy @ http://eiskits.com to see what he may be able to do for you.

To add on the Sirius/iPod compatibility - yes. This was tested on an MY2005 X5 just recently with the same exact configuration (Navigation).

Hello:

Thanks for the information about Bluetooth. Just wanted to knw\ow if you have gone through with the installation. Next, did you include a rear mounted camera in your installation? Thanks.

Yes, but not the OEM version. Pictures can be seen here:

I don't think you need all those parts.
I think you only need the TCU.
I'm also in Denver, and I have an X5 and will be doing this mod very soon!!!

Which dealer or who do have service your car in Denver? Assuming you are satisfied with them. Schomps indicates at a minimum it will require the 2005 TCU, the COntrol Unit, and the ULF, the balance is the center console cradle.
