2. Purchase a used unit and program it to the car. This can be done with bimmergeeks protools if you are not very tech savvy or ncs expert, windows laptop and kdcan cable. You do not need to flash the unit, just write vehicle order from CAS to FRM and code.

3. There is a 10 year/150,000 mile warranty on the frm3. If your car is still within that extended parts warranty you can take it to the dealership and have it replaced for free.
Thanks mate! Trying to look for someone locally to program and repair it, instead of sending it in. If all else fails, I'd just buy a new one and learn the NCS-expert software. Oh and yes I am just a few thousand mi over the warranty: 159,000.
