Dab retrofit

Hi people this is my first post on here. I've had my e91 330d m sport for just a year now. Small mods led interior light and a remap , but that's it so far. I'm curious if anyone has fitted an aftermarket dab radio kit. My audi had it fitted and I do miss it. Seen a few options available but has anyone got a recommendation.
Cheers for looking

Thank you for advice . Is the oem a good system compared to aftermarket. It looks cheap on eBay (probably won't finish that way) the last option looks a bit out of budget what's the difficulty in fitting the oem

For OEM, you will need to buy OEM antenna which is around 250 from the stealer. You will need to fit it, connect to the car and code it. Quality will be better compared to any after market kit if you install OEM antenna.

2nd option is the cheapest and works reasonably well.

CIC requires built in DAB tuners and does not accept the external units unlike CCC.

Cartronics claim to have a mobridge aftermarket solution that works with the CIC, would be interesting.

Nevertheless, BMW internet web radio has a wider selection available, which you can access through your CIC with combox.

I referred to OEM solution.
There are many aftermarket solutions which can work with CIC.

Is that true? OP has an E91 and I thought that antenna was in rear window(s)
