BMW Apps After the fact?

Greetings everyone, my first post... so let me give you a quick background.

Been a voyeur of the forums for a long time now, just never posted. I bought my wife a 2013 X5 last month since she's always wanted one (traded in her 07 328ci). Well, long story short as I was jealous and finally pulled a trigger on a '11 535i--which I absolutely love.

Here's my question:

I enjoy the connect drive and bmw apps that my wife has on her x5. Is it possible to go back to the dealership and get a firmware upgrade to the 6NR (correct code?) and pay the 250 bucks that BMW Apps usually costs? Or is there any legitimate way to get the google connect, and being able to stream music from my iPhone 4?

Thanks guys for the replies...

Depends on your build date (10/10 or later, or 03/11). 6NR was an available option after March 2011 however if you have an October 2010 through March 2011 buld you can upgrade the hardware here: http://www.bimmer-tech.net/shop/bmw-...drive-retrofit. Depending upon the software level you are at you7 may need the FSC code which is a couple of hundred bucks.

cool thanks... I'll have to see the build date on my car. This won't void any warranties will it? And how easy is it to install? ( I have an extensive IT background.)
