Just wanted to make sure that I can do this before going down this path. Thanks
These instructions should work for any CIC hard-drive based navigation system. If your system has the newer ('09+) navigation with the hard drive then you should be able to do this. The single slot that you have will take the navi discs one by one and copy the information to the internal hard drive.

EDIT: This thread (and the successes therein) were on the 3-series (E9X) vehicles. Some also had X3s and X5s. I don't know of anyone trying it with a 6-series but I can't imagine it being any different.
