I've looked all over the country and the internet for a way to convert the radio to euro spec but it seems impossible to do. even with a new CCC unit i am not convinced yet that it will work

Does anyone have further technical insights or suggestions how to solve for this?
Me too.
I have a US spec BMW and I have difficulties programming the radio to receive pair decimals. I did it by mistake once and cannot find how to do it again for the other stations!
so there is definitely a way to go around the system and I dont think it is the automatic radio scanning.
