Mine is a 2010 and I believe a CIC according to ECU readout. I have a single CD / DVD and the Nav option. Mine does not require a Nav CD.

What year is yours?

Of course not but passengers can. What is cool about it is that it was a simple 5 minute code process. No added hardware, SW or wiring.

I replaced the water pump and thermostat on my 545i at about 180K proactively when I did my coolant pipe.

Are you sure the water pump is bad or did the belt brake and rip a coolant hose?

Most likely if you did not have the codes prior and it's both left and right then it's probably the air line disconnected or air pump motor not connected /working.
