BMW CIC iDrive Navigation Retrofit (2004-2009 BMWs)

Product Review (submitted on October 20, 2014):
Hello everyone. I just wanted to share my CIC retrofit on my 2009 535i. I bought all of the components from BPM sport. Mike was super easy to work with and super helpful. I elected to self install and Mike was still there to get me unstuck when I did get stuck. I can't thank BPM enough for the ease of transaction and help with everything after.

The install was pretty easy actually with almost everything being plug and play. We also removed the MULF and TCU and installed a combox for complete phone and mp3 integration. The combox was probably the most difficult part of the whole process only because it required rerouting of MULF wires, which were located beneath my spare tire, to the combox location by the left rear wheel well.

Everything is OEM activated, no emulators or anything and there are no errors or lost abilities of the car. In fact, things like the voice activation work better. It was kind of hard to talk the car into navigating a specific address before, now it is as easy as my 2013 E70.

Pictures of my new CIC coming soon.

If you love your car then you need to do this retrofit. I have had the car like this for only one evening and I can tell you it is like a new car. I wish I would not have waited so long.

Thanks again Mike at BPM sport! Thanks to everyone on this forum for the info.
