functionality - short cuts, way way faster way to nagivate the sections




i didn't pay much attention but i think all the buttons light up (will double check), i tested them and they all function
You have the ebay link for the controller? No luck when I checked....

it was just an individual seller, not a store or anything

just keep an eye out and see if anything comes up

Hey OP

Did your lci idrive knob come with that rubber outline?


Here's a pic of my new lci idrive knob with my new lci center console trim and you see that gap along where the trim meets the lci idrive ??? I'm guessing the vendor forgot to give me that rubber idrive outline thing or do I have to order it ??

You are missing the controller trim bracket P/N 51169170917.

everything works, no error codes, just have to get used to it now
OP, I have a 2007 335I, and recently my i drive controller has been malfunctioning. Mine looks like the one in the picture above, on the right, but it has a menu button, and a second one with a sketched shouting face. I bought one used and I want to do a swap this weekend. How easy is it to do, and do you have any tips, for installation? Also, how long did it take you and how difficult was it? thanks. If you can post install instructions, I'd be truly grateful.

I bought one used and I want to do a swap this weekend. - 3 things you'll need 1) the controller, 2) controller bracket, 3) new trim piece since the controller won't fit in the old cutout

How easy is it to do, and do you have any tips, for installation? - follow the link i posted, pretty straight forward

Also, how long did it take you and how difficult was it? - about 30 min

If you can post install instructions, I'd be truly grateful. - http://www.m3post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=277690

^I think this retrofit only works for 07 and 08, not sure about 09's, not 100% though..


i have an 08 and did the swap and it works flawlessly and looks awesome!!

i love the DCT retro fit, the interior looks so much more classy/expensive with the DCT shifter and base plate, definetly one of my favorite mods
