You are here:  / BMW Retrofits


If you are looking to update your older CCC Navigation System or install an OEM Navigation System for the first time, this retrofit is right for you.
Our Base Kit includes:
CIC head unit (80 Gb, HDD based), updated with the latest software and pre-coded for your vehicle
CID Display 8.8”
CID power connector and cable
Latest maps (if available in your region and if navigation activation is chosen)
USB connector and cable for the glove box compartment
Full Retrofit coding
Video in motion activation
Activation Options: You have a choice of two activation options: OEM or hardware activation.
OEM activation uses OEM FSC code to activation your Navigation and, Voice Control, if desired. Hardware activation activates navigation AND voice, and is a more cost-effective approach. It is a very popular approach, especially amongst the owners of older BMWs, for which CIC navigation system was never offered.
Additional Options: You can also choose to get a new style iDrive controller, faceplate, USB K+DCAN cable for remote coding and climate control panel (if your vehicle is Pre-LCI).
CIC Retrofit Kit is available in the following languages: English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Polish, Swedish, Polish, Swedish, Romanian, Hungarian, Turkish and Greek.
The following languages below are subject to additional costs: Arabic, Chinese Traditional, Chinese Simplified, Korean and Japanese. Please contact us for details.
Voice Control Option is only available in the following languages: English, French, Spanish, German and Italian.
Fine Print: Plastic bezel is required for installation of the new style iDrive controller to the older style center trim plastic panel. Please note that additional rework of the plastic panel will be required to fit the bezel and new controller (cutting, sawing, etc.) Alternativelly a new plastic panel for the new controller can be ordered in addition to the CIC kit.
CIC head unit, Screen and iDrive controller are used, but very good quality and individually checked and inspected prior to shipping. All other parts are new. All used hardware is covered by a limited 90 days warranty; all new hardware is covered by a limited 1 year warranty.
