Not sure if you're gonna get too many people in your situation. Perhaps some Euro owners can chime in. Wish I could help, but we don't get 320's here in the US. All our F30s have handsfree bluetooth as standard. Sorry.

In my country, automatic shift is standard, but not the handsfree bluetooth!!! It is soo dumb! I got the car with handsfree buttons on it, but there is no bluetooth! Unbelievable! I am hoping to retrofit it in near future.

not sure mate, it comes as standard in the UK. Don't understand why they would take these options out and fit other more expensive ones as standard.

am guessing you would need to go to bmw direct to retro fit as it's so early in the f30's life.

I did an OEM retro fit on an e46 330i that was similar (had the buttons but no bluetooth actually installed). It was as simple as buying a ULF and associated components (antennas and such) and then plugging it all in. With an F30, you probably will have to get the ULF coded to the car which will likely have to be done at the dealer. Hope this helps. Good luck!
