You can actually get email responses from them rather quickly. I have the retrofit instructions from them, I can send them to you if you pm me your email address. You'll need coding too, which they did remotely for me via Skype once it's installed. Unless you can do that yourself of course. For me it was easier to have them do it.

CIC Software version?

This will eleminate shipping of your CIC system to us.
Next step would be to purchase a Combox retrofit kit from us and install it in to your bimmer That's it !
What software version do you need on the CIC for the Combox to work?

I would say the latest available. We always supply each CIC and Combox kit with the latest version available up to date, unless otherwise is agreed with customer

The problem with that is the newer ISTA versions require FSC codes for 6FL activation, something I feel makes this retrofit too expensive given the quotes I've seen.

Hello,

If I buy CIC PnP Activation Module you - do I code that?
What needs to encode it?

Which control unit - write what you have? is it hard? You can do this myself?

I have BMW 535 2008 with CIC Navigation system.

Sorry for my bad english.

Best regards!
Saliah

Yesterday, by doing the remote coding, the bmwretrofit successfully finished the CIC upgrade for my X5 including the Combox media.

What can I say? These people are professionals, dedicated, communicative and very friendly.

Alex, you are a great person and a pleasure to do business with. Special thanks to Vlad too for his fast and professional remote coding.

I highly recommend anyone to do this upgrade because its worth every penny.

You get 5 out of 5 starts from me.

Thanks again!

I'm interested in this for my e93. At a later date I may sell it and want to throw it in my e60 m5 or e90 m3. can this be done? What is involved in doing so and what would it cost?

Thanks

E9x and E6x CIC headunits are not the same, thus you will not be able to directly swap these, however we may help with exchange in the future if product is purhcased from our company.
Please contact us via email: info@bimmerretrofit.com for more information on pricing and conditions.

Your vehicle is equipped with the DVD based Nav system of the older model. That model is not capable for DVD Video playback. Newer CIC Nav systems which we offer are perfectly capable of DVD Video playback.

For more info please contact our sales directly: info@bimmerretrofit.com

If you are willing to spend money then go for CIC + COMBOX retrofit. It is ultimate car infotainment + bluetooth system.

If budget is tight then go for aftermarket AV unit like Dension, or BMW module for AV.
