BMW CCC Kufatec Media / TV/ USB Box

BMW CCC Kufatec Media / TV/ USB card

One of the forum members wanted his CCC to be enabled to play DVDs and TV. Although CIC is the appropriate way forward but buying CIC, fitting it and later getting it coded to the car is not a cheap option.

He wanted something add-on to current CCC. We looked at BMW tuner card but it had no USB option. So we ended up buying Kufatec Fiscube box for CCC.

Here is an introduction to the product:



And here is what comes in a box:



Instructions suggest that installation takes approx 5 hours. The car was dropped at my placed at 12pm and the forum member went for shopping in Lakeside shopping centre.
It is a small box, which becomes part of BMW MOST fibre loop. The product came with no instructions. However this company provided e-manual which was in GERMAN language. I had to translate it in the English to understand it.
It requires CCC removal, alteration of wirings, addition to this kit to MOST fibre loop, and adding antennas to your car.
Here are few photos of installation:













As usual BMW put some restrictions for our safety.







So, I had to code the car to enable drive in motion for off-road purposes.




Here is a quick review:

Pros:
TV / DVD / music all in one place
USB port for easy access to your media
Quality of vide was excellent
Good reception
Integration of steering controls with this kit

Cons:
Price
Quality of box itself was not impressive
No instructions in English for installation
Menu of this kit is not very user friendly.
No OEM clips for power wires
Wires should be longer to set the box somewhere better
Video play while driving kit is available but expensive.


All in all decent kit and owner was very pleased with the results.
