    Some of us (mostly without iDrive) have bluetooth for phone but not audio (yup, and BMW considers itself a technology company). Anyone tried the Bluestream?

    I have Bluetooth with CIC and I can’t stream music. Very annoying.

    I use the tune2air adapter

    Thing works and sounds great

    That is what I am using. I actually had to order the wma1000 from Europe because it's the only one that seemed to work. Mine periodically drops at the head unit and I have to reselect the USB input.

    If you have the combos unit - it can be coded to stream BT music.

    My car is WBALM7C51BE383788, 11/18/2010 build, no iDrive, 676 HiFi, and 6VC Combox.

    I thought this setup required iDrive for the bluetooth audio side? I have bluetooth calling, currently, but not audio streaming. Can you clarify, given the specific info I provided?

    Thanks,

    Don’t think the iDrive is needed. Usually I would just get into the combos and enable it ...

    I use a home receiver that I power with USB and listen through the aux. Its a little clunky but hidden in my center console and has the highest quality sound that I've found. Not that BT ever sounds great.

    Are you saying that if we have bt calling then you can code music streaming as well?

    also very interested in coding for BT. but as of now I use some cheap BT adaptor off amazon. wouldn't recommend it because the audio quality is junk. would love to find a better solution.
