Looks like it might be the same screen as the E85/86 Z4. I seem to remember there being screws in the back, under the trim piece. I don't have the Z4 anymore otherwise I'd try it for you.

Update at the dealer wiped my changes again. I'm now i-level E89X-16-07-507.
I think this corresponds to ISTA-P 3.59.5 (but not 100% sure).
Is the SP Daten available for this?

My 2013 has Bluetooth audio, but I think it was part of the Technology Package. If you don't have that option, you won't have bluetooth audio, just telephone.

Some people take them off for whatever reason. I bought a 325Ci off Craigslist that was like that. You can get replacement emblems online if you want to put it back to original.

The 2013 135is has the N55, not the N54. I don't see the difference between that and my 135i (w/ power kit) from an ECU standpoint.
