BMW Ringtone

What are your thoughts on the BMW incoming call ringtone?
I rather like it! Clever use of the gong.

My wife and I disliked it so much that I coded the car so that the phone ringtone plays instead.

Much better now!

It just does it.
I have Navigation Professional and Black Panel Display, full so it just does it. The iDrive also brings up its incoming call display but I didn't want to film that because it also shows the number calling.

Yes, but you have to have the A2DP combox (6NL or 6NK) for BT streaming support and then you have the enable it via coding.

It works great on our iPhones.

How about recording the car's ring tone with the iPhone and use that?

A quick Google search finds these alternatives:

(This is just the normal warning chime, not the phone ringing tone)


(From BMW, but these are fairly lame).

(Also from BMW: 3-Series car sounds)
