Will it be okay for 2009 Z4 e89? (im sure it will be the same for all 09 BMW with iDrive).

Also do i purchase via your website and how much is air postage to Australia?

Thanks!
This will work with the Z4 no problem. Just check it out on the website and you'll be set

Thanks Tom,

Can you by any chance explain how to get to the place in the dash in a 5 GT to install the module?

Thanks

Stefan

Haven't had the chance to tear down the GT model yet, but procedures should be similar to the standard 5-series.

If you should need instructions on radio removal, just drop me an email.

Had it professionally installed on a 2010 335i xdrive and it didn't work. the shop called customer service and still couldn't get it to work so they put my car back together and gave it back to me in the box. Anybody know what eas return policy is??

We've never had 1 failure on these modules, they're essentially bulletproof.

Pictures of your connections would be helpful to diagnose where the issue is.

just wanted to confirm that "play while driving DVD" works with a 2011 M3?

I did not see anything that would suggest NO but just wanted to ask.

Yes, all 2009-2011 models are covered by SmartTV

2008 does not have DVD playback capabilities through the iDrive.
