CCC to NBT retrofit... almost there
So I decided to take the plunge and upgrade the system since the CCC was the only thing making the M6 feel dated.
I initially thought of the cic upgrade but I got a pretty good deal on a NBT unit, display and controller that was impossible to turn up.
Everything has been wired up, coded and tested to verify its functionality, well in the garage at least hasnít hit the road yet but thatís majority of the battle lol!
Thereís loads of documentation out there on E90 and E60 retrofits, not nearly as much on the E63/E64 platform, which is where my dilemma kicks in.
Can anyone who has done this before chime in on how you modify the touch controller to fit? Unfortunately on ours itís actual center console thatís utilized as the mounting for it so Iím assuming thereís no other option besides hacking away at it.
Secondly, the dash trim for the ac controls and updated radio buttons, on the E60ís and E90ís you simply buy a new plastic trim, on the E63/E64 youíd have to get a whole new trim whether itís wood, carbon fiber or stainless steel. In my case itís Madeira wood and while I was prepared to purchase one from BMW, they no longer sell that particular wood trim for that chassis anymore.
Anyone has any clue who the manufacturer of the wood trim for Bmw was? Iím willing to source it if it can still be done.
Iíll upload progress pics so far.
