    DVD would be the easiest - email me and I'll send a copy of the technical papers for review.

    I'll just stop by in person later this month, will be easier. I was planning to anyway as we have some business to discuss. Not to mention I would like to check out the new facility, maybe do a feature story on it.

    Why was this removed from your car?

    Number 1 thing that pissed me off about my 08 was not having this new i-drive. So much better.

    I agree, CCC iDrive is painful, nothing is as bad as ASK iDrive in the early 7-series.

    This kit was installed before BMWretrofit was around. I have been working with BMW module coding/programming for 10 years - this was a personal hobby project of mine.

    Most suppliers will supply a EU iDrive unit - which is not equipped with HD Radio. This is a US version and has integrated HD radio.

    I see, so the HD radio won't work in Canada because we don't have that yet, so I don't care about that.

    So do you know how to transfer the VIN# to this unit so it works with the vehicles options? And do you know how to activate the voice control?

    SA620 (voice control) is already active, there is no need for FSC codes. The interceptor module will allow for Navigation to operate without coding.

    The system will require to be removed and returned to stock if going to BMW for updates, since it is not coded to your VIN. To correct this, proper coding (on-site) will be required.

    So for you to do the VIN, you will need to physically have the vehicle there.

    Yes - if you want the system to fully pass BMW's diagnostic equipment during its VIN check.

    Otherwise, the interceptor module is just fine.
