    This one was an extra one of mine. It's coded and is ready to be used with any E39 retrofit adapter.

  8. 2009 Vs. 2010 iDrive in M5

    E60 M5 and E61 M5 Touring Discussion

I have talked to many different managers at BMW dealers and read multiple articles, but can't seem to find someone who knows what they are talking about. I know they replaced the controller in 2009, but did they also...
