Hi burgman, I have the radio prof too. To be honest, if you are not fussy about sound, it's pretty decent. But I souped up mine with 1 4-channel and 1 mono-block amp plus a sub-woofer from JL Audio. And the sound is now crisp, clear, sharp, with great bass.

Hi ady - wheels are fantastic. My car is jet black also but I never so these wheels on offer. Can I ask how much they cost?

Also you have the sharks fin but don't have sat nav. How is that?

Where did you get the BMW cover for the power socket?

Cheers>

Shark fin also comes with the Bluetooth option 644. You can see Ady has this by the phone buttons on the steering wheel and radio. There are also fake fins on the Market.

I like that cover as well so second that question.

Hi all..
Mario486 is totally correct..the shark fin is fitted for a better signal for the phone when connected to the factory fitted cradle (well thats what the sales man said..)The wheels was a dealer option from Dick Lovett Bmw at Swindon U.k at a cost of 3500.. costly but transforms the look totally.
The Cigarette Lighter cover was from fleebay...
here is the link..

dust caps as well..

Hi Mario - I don't have the BMW bluetooth installed but I still have the buttons on the steering wheel and radio.

I think they may be standard on all models.

Wow - they were expensive but worth it plus makes your car almost unique.

I am just off to order the cigarette lighter and dust caps. Thanks for the links.

Hi Gatekeeper..
It has the factory dark tinted window option from B pillar back..BUT..
In the U.K the local plod are very strict if the tints are to dark..
A bit off topic...
A few years ago having a quick blast on my R6 bike and got stopped by the police because of my lightly tinted black visor...
the buggers confiscated this so called illegal visor leaving me I think a more dangerous situation as returning home it rained..
So, I would like to go a darker tint but this incident makes me think twice..

Are you sure you don't have bluetooth? Reason I ask is that the demo I drove did not have the phone buttons and no BT. There is another BT option, 6NN which gives the BT connectivity but no fin and cradle.

I would check if I was you. Have a look whether there is not a phone menu on the radio.

Yep... Now that you mention it... It wasn't obvious on the pics. Looks good.

Ckecked radio as suggested but no phone menu. Pressing buttons does nothing. Manual refers you to separate BT manual which I do not have. When I picked up car salesman just said those buttons didn't work.

Really strange?

If you have the buttons it must be very easy to retrofit then.
