CCC - $900

Here is what I did

Looked up my part number on Realoem. Contacted member Evan@Tischer bmw from Getbmwparts.com.
Installed my self in less than 20 minutes(dont know why the hell are they charging $200 for labor)
Got it coded from the bmw dealership .

CCC from getbmwparts.com - $685
Coding @BMW dealership - $240
Grand Total - $925 incl tax

Saved myself more than 500 bucks.

Do yourself a favor , If you happen to have a dead CCC do what i did and save a ton of money.

Thanks!!
Hi Ankurg09,

I have the same problem with my 2006 530i. I took it to the dealer and they quoted me $1640. I want to follow your foot steps. I got a question:
I saw a used CCC on ebay. Even though it says it was taken down from a 2006 530i, but the part number is different from mine, Mine is 6583-6987690-3, which is the same as yours, but the one on ebay is 6583-6987690. I got a quote from my local BMW dealer's parts department and the part number they gave me is 6583-9123088. Based on your experience, does it matter if the part numbers do not match?
I appreciate it very much if you, or anyone out there, could answer my question. Thanks.
