Default Adding bluetooth to the factory radio 2018

Is Grom ($139.99) the only option for adding Bluetooth to the factory radio these days? I tried searching for a dice unit but I couldn't find anything new or used. I'm only interested in playing music via Bluetooth. I don't need it to make calls. Currently running the c43 head unit. Thanks

I have the non-BT Grom unit in my E46, and I like it. Might get BT version for the E36.

Nobody? Everyone is using an aftermarket head unit these days?

I think Grom is the only player in the game right now.

I love my GROM unit. Great value for the money.
The only thing that I had to do to make it work correctly that wasn't in the instructions (if I remember correctly) was to unplug the disc changer in the trunk. Until I did that it would pause my music sometimes, often display NO DISC, and turning the volume down all the way didn't entirely mute the subwoofer.

My dad got a DICE / Audiovox unit from Bavaria Soundworks a few years ago when he got his e39 540i/6, but it looks like they've stopped producing them. It's been less reliable than my GROM box, anyway.

Just go aftermarket. It’s way better. Keep the stock unit for posterity..

Dice so a BT version, the BT light.

If you look on Ebay, there are many (obscure) brands offering an mp3/aux/ipod/bt interface.
