    X3M to an 8 series seems a bizarre swap?

    change of plans and circumstances meant that the 840 cabro works now where it didn’t. Wife really likes it and it’s a great car to drive.

    If you wanted to change that extreme you should have just got your X3 nicked like mine rather than all that kerfuffle. :D;)

    if they’d actually fixed my car the first or second time maybe I’d have kept it but 6 months of I wonder what won’t work this time every time you get into it gets to you in the end

    It sounds like some sort of software/electrical gremlin which must be hard for a dealer to sort as they won't know what parts to change:D. Bet they just Google it each time:p.

    Hi all,

    I had to get a new amplifier fitted to my car because of water ingress, and this is the first time I'm connecting my phone via bluetooth.
    I have a Samsung Note 10+ which connects just fine, and all phone functions work perfectly. However I can't stream bluetooth audio.

    I checked on the BMW bluetooth site and it says I have limited functionality for music.

    Is there anything I can do?

    Sorry should add I have a BMW ActiveHybrid5 (F10 model I believe)

    Have you checked you connected for audio in the idrive menu?

    similar to this:

    On mine I just have telephone.
    I tried someone's iPhone X and it's the same issue with hers.

    Wasn't audio playback via Bluetooth an optional extra on BMWs a few years back? It is possible to have it added via coding in some cars.

    It's known as Enhanced Bluetooth I believe.

    Doesn’t look like you have the Bluetooth music option.

    I'd be surprised if it wasn't an option.

    I think maybe replacing the unit has caused it to disappear?

    Did you just replace the amp or the coms module too?

    do you have bimmercode/esys or access to someone that does so we can scan and see what modules are currently coded.

    I'm bored and happy to help remotely if you have the right cables :p

    Haha you the man.
    I just replaced the amp, shall we take it to email?

    I'm a bit lost with the Bimmercodes

    In the mid 2000's did anyone else pay £100 for the basic CD player on their new BMW? It still irks me for some reason, compounded by the fact I got zero discount on the rest of the car! :mad:

    I was at the launch day at the local dealership as my M4 was on the 'stand' for their facebook live stream - so here's a quick vid. Discuss.... now that folk have seen these, what do you think?
