I love the outcome . Worth the trouble you went through.
I am even more impressed by the EVO upgrade on the iDrive module
Will you be willing to share details on that ?

yes, what would you like to know?

im actually planning on doing a little video run through of the NBT idrive. there are a few menus and settings that aren't native and a few settings that are missing.

such as there is no "DSC OFF" option in Mdrive settings.

i informed Bimmerretrofit tech support about this and they tell me it was a coding error. so that will be hopefully worked out. luckily you can still select any M drive setting manually with the buttons by the shifter.

overall it's still a huge upgrade.

apple carplay is really nice.

The Apple Car play would be nice update/grade. I rent a lot of cars (not because my s85 is at the shop) when I fly. I have to say, the Apple Car play in my rentals are awesome.

i didn't do the work myself.

although some people do buy the parts separately themselves and do the retrofit from scratch.

i bought a pre coded kit for my exact car by VIN number. Bimmerretrofit is the company i bought it from.

It's a fairly extensive install, even if you buy the kit.

it took my installer 2 full days. i wouldn't recommend doing it yourself unless you're very well versed in BMW electronics and custom fabrication. I'd recommend someone who's done retrofits on BMW before
