1. "black top" evo units have 4gb of ram and can run the ID6 version of IDrive. There are some silver versions with 4gb and maybe even black versions with 2gb but as a general rule black top == 4gb. Look for a black unit with HB 2XX these have 4gb.
2. They were mostly phased out and the few that are still produced are hard to find and usually very expensive.

1. The black tops are definite ID5/ID6 units with 4GB ram. There are some 2017 silver tops that are also ID5/ID6+4GB, but you have to really investigate what car they came out of and their build date as most silver tops are ID4 units.

2. Very rare to find them in US spec units. You can get these all day from ECE units though.

Cannot get network connection to EVO HU

Sorry to hijack the thread, but i cannot start a new one. I am performing a CIC to NBT EVO retrofit into a 2009 e92 m3. Bought a full system from a wrecked 2018 F36. I have everything cabled up but I cannot establish a network connection to the HU and I get no signal to the screen. It is getting power as I can feel it vibrate and get warm, and the retrofit adapter also gets power and powers the CIC faceplate. I have created a cable direct from OABR to ethernet (RJ-45) and have tried created 3 separate cables using 3 different CAT5e cables, 3 different OABR connectors, and always splicing in pre-crimped OABR cable leads with the MicroMQS pins. And have verified pinouts of each many times before and after making each one. I have also tested resistance of each lead through the cable on all 3 which are all good. So I literally have 3 totally separate cables that all produce the same exact result - when i plug it into my windows 7 laptop, the network adapter continues to loop from "identifying" to "unknown network" to "cable disconnected" every 1-2 seconds. I have also tried a second laptop with the same result. The cables from the EVO HU were cut off, so I don't think there is damage to the port/connector on the HU from them pulling it. I really hope my evo HU is not bad, but at this point I do not know what to try next. Any help is appreciated. Thanks!!

did you connect the activation line and supplied it with 12v 1k ohm?

Thank you for the reply! Yes, I did. For others that may come across this, I just found out the issue. It appears the retrofit adapter I was using was coded for an NBT unit and not an NBT EVO unit. The adapter provider just completed a remote session with me to update the firmware of the adapter for NBT EVO and I can now establish a network connection and ping the EVO HU at 169.254.199.99. I have no video signal and E-Sys still shows no targets that I now need to go troubleshoot, but I think the EVO HU is operational as now my climate control shows and temp values all show in celcius

Trying to wake up NBT HU. The head unit seems to react on CAN messages. If no messages go to sleep with no power consumption, when resume sending can - wakes up and consume up to 2.7A. However, the monitor does not work at all.

Is there any way to check it?
Trying to validate video cable-piount, works like on this pic.
Checked the voltage when screen is disconnected - got 8.4V but not constant..
