Need urgent help regarding the use of bluetooth with arduino to control four motors wireless Answered

I am planning to buy this bluetooth module  http://www.ebay.com/itm/Wireless-Bluetooth-Transceiver-Module-RS232-TTL-/200520318414?_trksid=p5197.m7&_trkparms=algo%3DLVI%26itu%3DUCI%26otn%3D4%26po%3DLVI%26ps%3D63%26clkid%3D2778525963156568714#ht_6903wt_906
so that I can wirelessly control 3 motors with the arduino. Can I use two L293D IC to control the 3 motors wirelessly?

Depends on the motors, 293s are not terribly powerful.
