I have a 2011 323i (sedan)

not sure if that makes a diffy

but considering i cant find the kit for any cheaper online, dealer is a decent option. Also this DOES NOT VOID warantee. for anyone questioning that...im on lease and will buyout the car after probably.

im still nervous about the re-code, can anyone explain why some need and some dont?
Follow what your dealer says. You do not want to void your warranty.

I think they are the same base crap with fancy name though, cant confirm.
the BMW pdf install manual says no code needed, but others say post 09 do need...so wtf.
There is some difference b/w 662 and 663.
662 cannot be coded to hi-fi as that headunit cannot handle the requirements of hi-fi sound system.
