Broken i-Drive

Soo about 6 months ago my i-Drive went out in my 06 e91 Wagon.

The slow death of my i-Dirve:

At first it would take longer and longer to load,

Then it would fail to load at times -- get a flash on the screen -- then the bmw logo would finally load after 15min,

Then it would load every now and again after being in the car after long trips

And now its just blank, BMW screen on occasion loads but then blanks out again.


What should I do to replace -- look on ebay for a CCC of the same year -- or -- try and upgrade to a CIC ?

Need direction here...thanks in advance

If you are going to replace the CCC I would grab a 2008 build date CCC with the newer style CCC and CIC trim. This will probably be about $200 if you coded it yourself.

You can also grab one of my CIC kits if you have some more money to spend. This choice will depend on how nice is your car and how much you value having a nicer interface.

My CIC kit would be $700 for your car. With the newer CCC you will need a new head unit trim with is about $35.

Yes that is my kit in the video. The eBay link I sent was a $85 03/08 CCC that you would need to grab just a new trim piece for that goes around the newer CCC. Post 03/07 BMW made a lot of bug fixes with the e90 including a CCC 2.0 that's much more reliable than the early CCC unit your car had. I only really hear of the earlier units failing. You can easily DIY code the replacement CCC unit unlike the cic which you have to deal with FSC codes.

My CIC kit comes everything you need to retrofit a cic in your car retaining the factory CCC controller. I shouldn't be advertising my kits on here since I am not a registered vendor and I could be a snake.

Do this the CIC it's worth it. Just did this last month and it gives a refreshed feel to the car amongst many other newer enhancements.
