I would imagine that the shortcut buttons could be a requisite for the buttons on the controller to work. I have 1/07 production car which means no buttons.

If it will work on someone else's car without the programmable idrive buttons, then I would strongly consider it.

back allows you to go back to previous menu, the option buttons takes you to settings.

So for a pre-programmable-button IDrive CCC (ie 06/07 car) this LCI controller doesn't work However, if I were to change my old CCC for the 08 version with the programmable buttons, it will work...! I would imagine it's quite easy to change, just that the car needs recoding...??

For that I would just go all the way and get instead a CIC and the new screen with the new controller knob... and have the new iDrive.

I agree, but at the moment it isn't a viable option. I have the opportunity to get hold of a 'new' CCC with the programmable buttons for next to no money... might just get it anyway just in case!

Could that just be swapped out without a recoding by the dealership?
