Quickly Unlock and Reset the REGION Code of your BMW Business CD CD53 Radio

This video demonstrates how to reset, code the REGION and calibrate the PLAYBACK features of your BMW Business CD Radio. The unit I'm resetting is a Feb 2006 Alpine BMW Business CD53 Radio BMW Parts Number 65 12 6 961 215 that has MP3, HD Radio, Sirius Satellite Radio, and iPod Data/Auxillary Capabilities. This unit was ordered online but came set for another region. If your radio came like this unit did you will need to follow the steps in this video to unlock, reset and code your radio to your region. You can also see hidden information (like the production date and SV number) on the radio as well as set your antenna sensitivity and play around with your DSP settings. This will work for all year BMW Business CD53 and CD radios found on the 3 series and X3 vehicles as well as other BMW vehicles. There have been a number of posts on the Service Mode settings. Here is a summary of what I have seen: AREA - self explanatory (EUR,USA, JAP, etc) AF - Alternate frequency feature which automatically finds and can switch to a stronger station with same programming.

BMW bluetooth install for Business CD radio (AUX, A2DP, USB)
Demo and install tips for bluetooth receiver in BMW E87 with basic Business CD radio. Bluetooth module supports Hands-free profile (HFP) so it's used as a phone kit, as well as the Advanced Audio Distribution Profile (A2DP) that is required for music and navigation guidance streaming. Module is powered from the cigaret lighter fuse, through a 12V-to-5V converter. It turns on automatically every time ignition is on. It also automatically connects to the paired bluetooth device (in this video iPhone 6). Sound is connected to the AUX input, hard-wired under the trim. Microphone is installed in the dome light for a clean OEM look. This device is equipped with USB port and microSD card slot. When connecting an USB drive or memory card it will automatically switch to that source and play music files from the flash drive. In the future I'll add 3 control buttons to answer calls, end calls, play, and pause track, and browse through tracks. Bluetooth module can be found on AliExpress, it costs about $3-$5 including world-wide shipping.
