Hi, well I'm way over here in Australia, hopefully when you all wake up fresh I'll get some great answers.
Have just purchased a 2003 E66 736Li.

I tried searching for threads with no luck, I'm sure there there so appreciate assistance.

My dream upgrades would be -

Blue tooth / dial interactivity with the existing i drive and visual on screen view of telephone directory.
Interactivity with the idrive with iphone for music
Imroved engin economy / performance via off the shelf chips - not wanting to spend stupid $ but keen to understand options.

Any suggestions of links would be greatly appreciated.

I take it you didn't buy a car with the Bluetooth option?

You should be able to get the engine remapped (it's not a chip like in the old days). You need to find a suitable expert in your area.

didn't think Bluetooth option was available for the pre 05 e65/66 models.
Retro parts for the seven will be difficult and expensive as most of the time can only be carried out by BMW themselves.

Oh yeh - I think I'm right in saying that it all went weird with iDrive. The e65 system is unique. It's Windows CE as opposed to the e60 which was VxWorks. Or something like that.....
