So, as I haven't found no DIY on the new X3 F25, I'm blindfolded and pretty much doing this by heart. I posted my own DIY on post 2, feel free to chip in

I've came to an important issue on the fitting the new CIC part inside the trim.. I couldn't get it to fit my car. I think I have a problem with the "Equipment Mount" P/N: 51459193777 as it's too small to fit the CIC unit inside and I had to order a wider one.
