Although they are a couple of people that have done the E60 CIC retrofit overseas it hasn't been documented with pics. Hopefully this log will help those that are hesitant or not sure of whats need it for the retrofit.

I received most of the parts that i needed for the retrofit. Still waiting for a couple of parts that should be here on Friday. Looking at doing the installation,coding and programming sometime over the weekend with Patryk. Wanna thank R9ndy and Technic for all the help in getting the right part numbers.

Nice GL would this be for the Pre-LCI to the LCI center console? Let us know how it goes and if it would work for a non navi. GL

Yes, its a pre-lci to lci center console.I have a non-navi unit in my car so this will definitely be a nice upgrade.

The main part numbers that you need regardless of you own pre-lci or lci are

61119185171 CIC HD Screen cable
61319167196 USB Port
61129196805 USB Port cable
51456976361 CIC Center trim
61136954526 CID CAN/power connector

Everything else is based on the year of your car and your wood trim. For those who own LCI cars you have less parts to buy than those with Pre-LCI cars.

If you have a LCI car the only parts you need to replace is the center trim and support bracket for the new idrive controller.

If you have a pre-lci be prepared to spend about $400-$600 for the lci conversion.
