Problem with both is that they'll update it to latest software on which 6NR is locked and can be only opened with FSC code.

So if any of you plan to add combox at some stage, don't get it update to latest software as you cannot downgrade the software later.

IF combox is not on your wishlist, then carry on.
You've got me thinking about the combox / 6NR now.

Is there anyway to upgrade the CIC for 7 digit postcode and still be able to install the combox/6NR without an FSC code?
Yes if you get the CIC flashed
-not to the latest software as you'd required fsc codes for 6nr as well at the top of fsc codes for maps update
-get it updated to relevant software by Alpina 527 or myself.
Hope that make sense.

An indy quoted me 80 for a software update, so if i dont have any luck with bmw, I'll take it to them.
I've got 7 digit postcode working on my car now after a software update at the indy (didn't bother taking to bmw)
