You can now retrofit 6NR

I found this in another forum:
I guess it might be high time we let you all know that we are ready to offer the 6NR retrofit for the F-series

We have not announced that officially as we have hands full with other work, but if you guys are interested please send us your VIN at

We are currently looking for customers in NJ, FL and NorCal to start with, but you can still contact us if you live elsewhere.



I took contact, and here are some additional information:

You do not need Media Snapin. You can use USB cabel
The car must have the latest Software Level (March 2011)

For all other questions, take contact with Bimmer-Tech

Heaven is where the police are British, the cooks are French, the cars are German, the lovers are Italian and it is all organised by the Swiss.

Nice. They did think July was the month they would have it, and they came through.

I think the problem was getting a supply of boxes (post-March) and time to test it. In April/May those had to be ordered from overseas. The North American supply chain appears a bit immature.

Any cost estimates for it? I would imagine $600 - $700 but don't know. Maybe the first people will get a nice deal.

How would that affect warranty. Is this BMW approved ? Also can you update your software from your car or do you have to do it thru your computer. Thanks
