A seller recommended to me the following Chinese ICOM Clone, however, I did not purchase it, so I cannot personally vouch for it:

I believe the cost is around $700, a bargain compared to an original BMW ICOM, which is north of $3500.

I am trying to go the software ICOM Emulator VM route, which should cost around $150, but I need to better understand it's limitations. As I understand it, it can be used with E-Net for ISTA/D fully, however, with ISTA/P it is limited to Coding and no Programming.
