Cannot find connected drive in my 2013 F30

Hey, i recently bought 2013 BMW F30 Vin: J604647, i can't find Navigation, Connecteddrive, or Office, while it's available in other models...

1-So my questions are, is those options can be downloaded by updating or something or it i just must upgrade hardware?

2-My second questions is when i connect my iphone 5s (ios 8), via bluetooth or usb i can just use phone function on i drive, and can't play music or any other options, how can i fix this?

3-How can i use voice command, i have the button in my steering wheel but when i press it, it do nothing at all?

4-Anyway to mirror my iphone screen on idrive screen?

i hope anyone can help me with this questions because i'm confused a bit....

1. Your car didn't come with the business or Pronav. Sorry your outta luck. You would need to retrofit the NBT (Pronav).

2. You need Enhanced Bluetooth (EBT) to play BT Audio. It can be done if you have the Pronav or a combox....sorry you have neither.

3. I believe you need EBT for this work, as you have no combox it's not possible.

4. Not possible, you need to buy a 3rd party solution.

You need:

8.8" Screen
New iDrive Screen cable, the one in your car to the 6.5" screen isn't compatible.
NBT unit.....do not get the CIC Pronav unit.
Nav iDrive controller
Emulator - You'll need this is fool the car into thinking the donor VIN FSC code for the maps is the same as your Car's VIN. Without it the Navigation won't work.

Get it from eBay, I've done it myself. Not very difficult to do, there is thread about this in the coding forum.
