Mein Auto: Z4 3.5i
Installing a IDRIVE on a Z4 3.5i

First of all, let me say congrats to this great and very usefull forum.

I just got myself a 2010 z4 3.5i with 8k km here in Brazil.
I didn't come with the Idrive.
I've got this kit from ebay:
BMW e89 Z4 CIC navigation HDD iDrive navi monitor

So far so good.....

As i got the kit here, i cannot fit it in the dash board or could not find the places to plug the screen and the Idrive Joystick into the CIC.
Here are some pictures so you can see it.

I've asked the seller about it....and the frist follow up is that i have ti "adapt" the dash to fit the new CIC....Nothing was told about were to plug the screen and joystick.

The question is:
- Is really needed to adapt the CIC or he sended me the wrong piece?
- If this is the write CIC and i'm messing up the connections, is it worth to "adapt" the dash? (adapting means completely cut and glue the original dash from the inside....)

Well, that's my sad history so far....looking for a happy ending.


Obs: On the last picture, you can see that one of the brackets came out broken.
