On the instructions he printed it says that this kit is for cars pre 03/09 and there is also another part currently unavailable which the other system lists as for post 03/09 which is 65412163268
So to summarise the BMW parts computer says pre 09/09 cars can have 65410445684 but the instructions and instructions software says post 03/09 cars need 65412163268, and my car was registered 06/09.
Question is which part do I need, and what is the difference?
Thanks in advance
Maybe the difference is the wiring? I don't know, but if you look a few pages back some people with the LCI e90 model had different coloured speaker wires and couldn't find the 'split' which was supposed to be under the door sill. Updated instructions, different wire colour codes and maybe different length wiring going to the amp would be required.
Also, it would be the build date rather than the registration date which would be important. You can find the build date under the bonnet or even by plugging your chassis number into realoem.com
If anyone has more recent instruction manual for the latest cars and colour codes please pass them on!
