Some of the 645i 4.4L engine issues were sorted when they went to the 4.8L in the 2006 650i. With the years passing and depreciation occurring perhaps you could make a good deal on an 06 or 07 and...

eBay?

I am actually selling off my original CCC and related parts there right now... But don't buy it! Go the CIC retrofit route and never look back, what a great upgrade!

Bottom View - Right

Those air gaps are gone... As long as the eye is not drawn to it, this looks like a properly-molded snap-in piece to adapt the newer controller to the complex 3-D shape of the E63/4 console.

99% There?

I think that what I lack now is a ZUSB update to the MEDIA module. Mine is (older) and reads at CMEDIAR.C03 for coding. You need .C05 (not even .C04 has it) to get two lines of code for the...
