Nick-
I've read through this, and if I understand correctly- since I have the CD changer option on my screen already, I can go ahead and run through this install without any coding at all? It's essentially install the box, and have Bluetooth streaming with steering wheel controls?
I'm a 2007 e90 without idrive, with the HK Logic 7 professional head unit. The ebay link declares idrive.

I'm also wondering why you're so inclined to install idrive in your car. Any idrive car I've ever been in is so outdated, that I'm glad my car is a non idrive. I personally prefer the classic simple dash of BMW's though.

If not can some upload some pics of how they discretely added the included mic with the box?

thanks
If you have Bluetooth calling in your car already you can connect to both the Bluetooth box and the factory Bluetooth calling. If you just have the mic you can custom make a cable and retain the factory mic.

You will not have to do any coding if you have the CDC option on your radio.

My iDrive retrofit was under $450 and iDrive cars hold a 1k premium over non iDrive cars. At that price why not and I can make my money back selling the old parts.

should be an improvement as the Y-wire compromises a good DAC and then a secondary ADC/DAC conversion at the headunit.

This device leaves a single DAC process at the deck (or MOST system).

Already a better potential. Whether you can notice the difference is what’s debatable and personal.

Y cable uses the aux for the actual audio .
We know the aux is crap.

Might be closer to a usb stick played directly through the
usb port.

I never had factory USB in my car and could not tell you.

If you have 6FL or even AUX and a cigarette port in your armrest, this is all you need:

I hated the tuni's audio quality and lack of steering wheel controls.
