I was supposed to post this a while ago but I got kind of busy with things. These are the pics of the 2004 530i I recently purchased. It's a fantastic car (amazing drive, I took it on a long road trip the weekend I got it). It's got the Logic7 system, which sounds really good. Much better than the sound system I had in my last car.
Although I'm totally satisfied with the car, there are still several things that I want to add into it -- namely bluetooth, Sirius, and navigation. I've been a little disappointed with the assistance I've gotten (or lack thereof) from BMW USA and my local BMW center. I guess it comes as little surprise, though. They insist that it is "impossible" to add Sirius if it did not come equipped from the factory. The last car I had was a Mercedes, and they said the same thing about adding navigation/COMAND to that. So much for impossible -- I installed the COMAND system in about 2 hours on a Saturday afternoon. I just had the dealership turn full support for it on.
I can't imagine it's truly impossible to do everything I want. Bimmernav apparently has a solution for the bluetooth and navigation, but nothing for Sirius. Before I buy anything from anyone, I want to make sure everything is going to work right together. Ideally I'd like to get the technical specifics of what components drive these features and how they interface with the rest of the system. I just wish I could find someone at BMW who would actually think before responding with "it's impossible".
Anyhow these are some pictures I took of the car.
