Bluetooth set to active. No retrofit coding is necessary in order to use this feature.

3. For E46/E83/E85/E53 vehicles voice activation functions are not part of the TCU. A separate SES module can
be installed. Refer to EPC.
z
For E46/E83/E85/E53 vehicles produced
between 3/2004 and 8/2004, are equipped with a
TCU that does not support Bluetooth. On these
vehicles the TCU can be replaced at the
customer's expense with a 2005 MY TCU.
Cradles may not be added to these vehicles
because of wiring incompatibility.
z
Please disregard the Owner's Manual insert,
shown to the left, indicating Bluetooth
functionality. The hardware in these vehicles
will not work correctly.
4. For E60/63/64 vehicles produced from 3/04 to 8/04, Bluetooth functionality can be added to most of these
vehicles by updating the vehicle software using CIP 13.2 or higher. After this is performed "Retrofit" of "Tel
Bluetooth" needs to be performed. Follow the procedure as described in this Service Information for
"Activating Bluetooth" and "Pairing the Handset". Vehicles prior to 3/04 would need to have the TCU replaced
with the 2005 MY TCU at the customer's expense and the vehicle updated to CIP 13.2 or higher. Phone
docking cradles may not be added to these vehicles because of wiring incompatibility. Note: This
