Have you played with it?
You will be able to update the firmware on any ECU so long as BMW releases updated firmware. What I am saying is that Kombi seems to be the same in the 2013 model, so you can update your Kombi firmware, and get the same coding options and features, so long as those features are not dependent on HU_NBT. You will be able to flash HU_CIC to newer firmware, but no firmware update will ever turn HU_CIC into HU_NBT. HU_CIC will always be some version of HU_CIC, and HU_NBT is a whole different animal.
