I've got a 2008 M3 as well that I really want to update the electronics in.
I am holding off on the combox for the moment until the Iphone supports text messages going to the idrive. Just can't justify the retrofit for internet and the facebook app which I don't see myself using in the car. I go to some VMSC autocross events, but not really any meets.
I have been recently trying to install updates to the bluetooth and maps (2012 version). I have been doing so by USB, but for whatever reason the idrive don't start the update when I put the usb in... Some one said that the earlier CIC software versions had to be updated by DVD so I may look into updating the CIC firmware/software.
UPDATE: Ordered the navi DVD's from tischer. Also pulled the VIN for map updates from the CIC using this method: http://www.**************/showthread...7422#post27422
