Anyone have any experience adding a blue tooth system to your car?

Wanted to know what my best option is to install a Blue Tooth hands free system in my car. I have heard that taking it to BMW is really expensive. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I've never put an aftermarket unit in a BMW, but I have used the Argos modual in an older Mercedes. It worked flawlessly with my factory radio. In some ways it worked better than the factory unit in my 2008 MB.

I installed a parrot bluetooth kit with a connects2 adapter I had to order from the UK in my E46. It works well, and I used a diy that was avaliable on bimmerfest by a poster named delmarco. There may be appropriate adaptors avaliable for the e82 as well.

If you want a simple one without any installation look at the different visor mounted options. Most will go several weeks without need of a charge. It's nearly invisible and you don't clutter your dash with stick on displays, microphones, etc.

These models work well:
Motorola TZ700 Visor Bluetooth Car Kit
(If you use an Android phone the Blue Ant S4 is cool because it has apps that give it some features to make the visor kit even better)

By the way, I own some mobile phone stores and installed h/f kits for years. These visor mounted kits sell very well with very few problems/returns.
