Bluetooth

Hi mini friends

Thinking about installing the genuine Bluetooth in my MCS R56 from 9/2006, one of the earlier.

Dealer tells me that its not possible, due to my early mini production..
- just not sure if he is right..

the Ulf module 84109229740 on photo shows that it has been produced since 8/2007..
but would this module or earlier module work with the Bluetooth retrofit kit and boost cd??

Thanks!

It should be doable... I did install a non-oem bluetooth module on my 03/07 car. However take my advice and instead of going for the antiquated OEM MULF2 module, think about the FISCON from Kufatec (Parrot CK5050). As the SOC is much newer it is much more compact and also more compatible with the phones. It also does not need any coding, it automatically enables itself when installed in the vehicle's MOST bus (fiber-optic).

The OEM is a much more complicated installation, requires a separate antenna and has not been updated (phone compatibility) since 2008.

Don't expect miracles in sound quality either, as none of the modules supports beam-forming mics.

There is also a m0bridge alternative which has actually been upgraded to the Parrot FC6000 SOC with some special DSPs...

PS: Having read the mObridge M2 Connect page description, I would definitely go for that module. It is much more advanced than anything else out there, its specs are inline with the newer MINI Connected platform... The only think you need to ask is if they have a microphone that fits in the car's existing slot. The FISCON does have one and nobody will ever tell this was no factory unit
