dJust had a call from Sinspeed to say my CCC iDrive unit is indeed broken beyond repair, something about the main BGC board being fried after a jump start - which does tie in with when I was jump started by the RAC and it went soon after.

So I either need to find a new CCC unit and code it to my car, no alot out there on Ebay from what I can see

or I bite the bullet and go for a CIC upgrade.

If my CCC broke I would definitely go for the upgrade

Now's the time as well as Jammy has another one and apparently his installs are top notch
