Yes, but it is more extensive than what is being discussed in this thread.

Thanks alot mate, i did the full retrofit today, and it fully works, the nav came with the tcu and the previous owner had bmw online service supsciption which is still active so i get the weather, news, google etc.

The sat nav was not working at first as i expected because i dont have the fsc code, but this morning when i got in the car to go to work the navigation option came up and everything works now perfectly without any programing apart from the sound as i have logic7 in my car and the the car it came from dident, but hoping to get it sorted soon

If you need coding for the cic, just contact Patrys. He's the guy you want to talk to. He coded my cic to my car, dvd in motion, and folding mirrors. Patrys is the man.

With all this tech going into cars, I can see some statistics going up in RTA's not keeping an eye on the road,

For those of you that retrofitted a CIC...

For those of you that retrofitted a CIC, do these two screens work for you?

I can't seem to check off that box for the speed limit warning and my trip computer is always blank for me. Regardless if I have a destination set or not.

They both work for me... I think that your problem is that your cluster does not know that there's a Nav in your car yet. The info for those screens most probably is coming from the cluster (speed and trip computer).

How about this guy in Lithuania selling complete kits?
http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/BMW-e...item2eb11fc52d
Seems like everything you need, and he has a guy who logs in to your car to do the programming. And the price is good...

Also, could I sell the old CCC and display to recoup some of my costs? Or do you still need the CCC if you take the car in for service?

Unfortunately I don't have really any photos except pieces on the floor and the dash cavity

Did it myself so was trying to get it done and not miss anything but I can take a picture of the finished install ... I followed Booster's instructions for most of the project and the tips in this thread in tandem

the programming was done by BMW Retrofit who did it all remotely and were very helpful and great guys

I have not tested Voice Control but that was not a huge concern for me initially

Can you give us an estimate on total costs spent? There's only one prepackaged solution out there right now which is too expensive. EAS has not come out with their solution yet either.
