Did a bit more digging. Looks like the kit comes from a company called Connects2. Found a news article here about the BMW deal, and details of the kit here.
Rob I'm not sure what options you do have and it depends on what phone contract you have but have you thought about streaming these channels off interweb?

I have an 'all you can eat' plan with 3 I just plug the phone in ( current Audi) select the channel on my iDrive and off you go. I was expecting lots of drop outs surprisingly I get far less than when using DAB and the good thing is if you do get a drop out it acts like its just been paused so when it comes back online ( few seconds normally) it picks up where it left off.
Plus the are many more channels not just the DAB ones

Mostly up and down the A1 and country roads of Bedfordshire and Cambridgeshire
