Good day everyone and Thank you for reading!

We are pleased to announce that we are offering to our customers and to all of the BMW community CIC Navigation System Retrofit kits for E7x, E6x and E9x and newer series of BMW vehicles.

To all of our customers, no matter where they are located, we offer Remote Coding Services as well.

CIC Navigation System entered the BMW market not so long ago. It was introduced as a replacement to the older and inefficient CCC Navigation and Entertainment System, and opens a new chapter in OEM Vehicle Navigation and Entertainment Systems.

It is based on a powerful Video and Graphical processor; it has internal HDD for multimedia and maps storage. Fast response speed, high resolution of the display, appealing and ergonomic design, improved internal structure of the components and many other features make CIC Navigation System the leader in its class of OEM vehicle navigation systems. As such, CIC Navigation System has a strong potential to continue to be used as the platform for the development of newer functionalities and this means that BMW will continue using the CIC platform in the future series and generations of its models.

As opposed to its older counterpart CCC, CIC is compatible with various modules, such as Combox Media, BMW Connected Drive and Rear-view camera. So CIC is big step forward from the older CCC navigation system or MASK.

Bimmer Retrofit
Bimmer Retrofit Inc. is a Canadian-based company, located in the province of Quebec, but we are not limited to the Canadian market. We are one of the few companies in the world who offer CIC retrofits and other various services across borders, to customers worldwide, using Remote Coding. We also sell CIC Retrofit kits at our online store located at:

Our standard kits for any Ex series vehicles includes:
- CIC Head Unit updated with the latest software and pre-coded for your VIN
- CID 8.8” HD Display
- CIC iDrive Controller
- HD CID display cable
- USB Socket and cable for the glovebox
- Full retrofit coding
- Installation instructions

Each kit comes pre-coded for customer vehicle’s specs.
We provide our customers with Installation Manual which explains in detail how to perform retrofit of the CIC system in the vehicle. We also provide our customers with online (email, MSN, Skype) and phone support regarding the CIC installation.

Various models of BMW (E6x, E7x, E9x) may require some additional parts to be purchased for the CIC retrofit to be properly installed. Having the experience of working with a wide variety of BMW models, as part of our services, we provide our customers with a full list of all the parts which may be required for each specific CIC installation case.

CIC retrofit kits are offered in all of the following languages including Chinese, Japanese and Korean

Installation Packages
While understanding that CIC retrofit is something that costs quite a bit of money, we strive to make it affordable to everyone. We are proud to announce a “step-by-step” approach to CIC retrofit installation to those, who might not be willing to pay for the entire installation in one shot. This approach gives you the option to initially purchase the CIC system without expensive Navigation System and Voice System activation. You may do the activation later, when you are ready to make the additional investment.

Activation and CIC Coding
We also offer Bimmer Retrofit Hardware Activation for the Navigation and Voice functionality in your CIC system. This activation is done only in CIC unit and does not require any tempering with the wiring of your vehicle.
We will be happy to activate your CIC unit or to provide you this activation for the CIC unit purchased from our store.

In addition we offer remote coding for various options available in your vehicle but not activated for you by the manufacturer.

We will be happy to code your CIC system, purchased from any third party to work with your vehicle. However in this case we will not be responsible for any possible glitches in its functionality due to the fact that we did not perform the initial testing of this system.

Quality Control
Before shipping, each CIC system goes through a rigorous set of tests at our facilities to make sure that each and every one of customers receives a properly functioning system. The systems go through functionality, vibration and 48 hours burn-in tests. Despite the fact that we only use OEM parts for the CIC retrofits, it is important to be sure that the components are fully functional and meet all safety criteria.
All information regarding the services we offer can be found at our online store via the following link: BimmerRetrofit
We accept VISA, MasterCard, Wire Bank Transfer and Money Orders.

Exx NBT retrofit

Bimmer Retrofit is working hard to make the NBT retrofit for E-series happen sooner than you think! We are getting closer and closer to the completion of the project and would like to inform you on the status of the retrofit.

We have received many emails from you guys asking questions, and here are some highlights for you based on the most common concerns:

- All of the back lights on the front panel are working;
- All of the buttons on the front panel are working and shortcuts are working too (memory buttons are also working);
- Steering wheel control buttons are working;
- Service intervals and vehicle info are working;
- Bluetooth is working;
- Rear-view camera is supported;
- iDrive touch controller is supported;
- Voice control is working;
- And of course, navigation is working too.

We need a little bit more time to run some final tests and make sure there are no problems before we release this retrofit in the global marker. As you can see, at this point the retrofit is 95% complete.

Thank you for your continuous interest and support - this is what keeps us going!
