Gathering my CCC to CIC parts...

So, after 3 weeks of owning my 06 325xi wagon, I'm doing the CIC retro. Currently the car is CCC with voice control, no usb, no bluetooth, no telephone.

I just picked up a CIC unit, and waiting for news on a CID.

But, I need the proper cables, and that green connector (unless there's a plug in adaptor I can use to avoid re-pinning connctors?)

I'm keeping my CCC idrive controller (for now).

I've read and read, but can't seem to find a source for the necessary cables.

CID to CIC
CIC to USB ARM REST
CIC to USB GLOVEBOX
CID display connector (that green one?)

thanks!

Nevermind. Ordered it all via ECS tuning (300$ for the needed cables, usb etc..)

Any recommendations on CIC emulators? The ebay ones at all good?

Does anyone know if I should get bmw to update all my software before doing my retrofit? Seems if I install a oem alarm.. looks like bmw needs to code and update the car. I have a feeling they cant if I've changed to a cic?

You could code the alarm yourself man... far as I know I doubt you'd get much from the update.

I believe it's the dealer coding which is different than the OBD2 port? I'll need a coding expert to chime me in here =)

So far I've gotten all the code, programs, wiring for my items to arrive in the mail. My test coding will be to make my AE's daytime driving lights! =)
