    Hey,

    I have a BMW 320i E46 with the standard business radio with front loading CD and rear CD changer. I also have steering wheel controls.

    I want to integrate my iPhone. I already have an iTrip and use my phone for navigation but during calls i just can't hear the people on the other side since the speaker sucks. I want a bluetooth kit but don't know what is best. I would prefer integration with the car as it already has buttons for answering calls but I'm not too sure how the OEM kit works. Do I just get BMW to install it? And can it work in conjunction with the BMW iPod kit?

    This type of question would be answered better on the bmw forums. I wouldn't recommend going to bmw to install anything, you would be better off going to best buy or a store that specializes in car audio. If your car has buttons for answering a call, it most likely already has bluetooth. Read your manual to figure that out or maybe someone on the bmw forums can help. I installed a parrot bluetooth 3200 in my car and it works through the car stereo.

    I've already put it up on a BMW forum. Just thought maybe some mac guys have car experience.
