2008 E90 M3  [0.00]
I want to post a quick review of my experience installing a CIC and combox update to my 2008 e90 M3, courtesy of Kate and the BimmerRetrofit team.

I purchased the CIC upgrade about 3 years ago and was happy with the ease of install, as well as the excellent customer service I received in the remote coding of the CIC. I'm by no means an expert at installing car stereos, but I had no problems following the clear directions that were provided with the CIC upgrade, and the unit has worked flawlessly since I've installed it.

I've been interested in the combox upgrade for quite some time, but couldn't bring myself to pull the trigger. This year, with a little left over Christmas money in hand, I finally took the dive. I sent an e-mail to Kate and she was able to tell me exactly what I needed (a CiC software update, the combox, and the PnP wires and MOST terminator) in order to outfit my E90 M3 with a combox. I shipped my CIC to their office in Ontario, and about a week and a half later, my CiC showed back up on my doorstep, along with the combox and wiring kit. It literally took me 15 minutes from start to finish to remove the old TCU and MULF, install the combox and re-install the CiC, and like I said, I'm not an expert at installing car stereos. Very easy! I fired up the M3 and everything worked perfectly!

I really want to thank the Bimmerretrofit team and Kate- their customer service was outstanding, and they addressed and patiently answered all my questions (I must have sent about 10 e-mails... yeah, I'm that guy). I'm now the happy owner of a CiC and Combox, fully functional in my 2008 E90 M3! Thank you!!!

2. Our eNBT Retrofit Adapter now supports the Sports Display for NBT head unit in E-series! You can have Power and Torque displayed on the screen, just like it appears in F-series! It will show you real-time Torque and Power values of your engine.

Try checking your media source, make sure your file system format (ex. FAT32) is correct, and also check the head unit - make sure it is ok.

Thank you for your answer. It is strange but the update is working when I'm driveing the car, so I had to drive for 30-45 minutes, update completed and everything it's OK again.

Help pls with getting info from CIC unit

Hi,

I have recently had the CCC to CIC upgrade done and everything works fine accept the "my info" which means I can no longer receive destinations from Google or any other "send to my car" app.

I have a full active BMW assist account but understand that it maybe a database issue as the car originally had the CCC unit fitted. I have read on a US forum that all you need to do is get BMW connected drive dept to move you over onto the CIC database. This is not easy as the refused initially but then asked me to provide all this info from the retro fitted CIC:

ICC-ID

TCU-ID

MSISDN

Serial number for new head unit if different from the ICC-ID

Does anyone know where this info is located? & what software is needed to extract it? Its all rather strange as all the other assist functions work fine including email

Any help would be gratefully appreciated

Thanks

Please check my email from 09/17. As I explained, it is difficult to diagnose these sort of issues remotely. Your best option is to contact the seller of your CIC kit, you should also verify whether a Combox was installed.

We have an unusually high amount of emails, and that's why we are not able to respond to all emails within 2-3 hours as usual. A reply was sent to you about 30 minutes ago. We apologize about the delay.

No, sorry, the Sports Display is only available in F-series natively or with NBT Retrofit, powered by our eNBT Retrofit Adapter!

That's too bad. What are the advantages of the NBT retrofit over CIC. I've got CIC retrofit already.

You may find the following thread useful: http://www.e90post.com/forums/showth...9#post17048219

It provides a direct comparison of CIC and NBT retrofits in terms of functionality, effort and pricing.
