Try it, but you will require few codes to activate your CIC unless you are going for after market solution.
I'm looking at the hardware activation solution with the CAN filter. I've weighed up the pros and cons and I don't think there's a big disadvantage to the hardware solution - yes, it's not as BMW would do it, but nor is fitting a CIC to a 2007 car, so I don't see the harm. Now I just need to work out how the coding works (where I think it's just a case of changing the build date and adding a couple of options to the vehicle order in CAS and NFRM then recoding CIC, but I'm not certain).
