E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Mein Auto: 645CI
upgrade to BMW icar software on 645CI

Hi

Can anyone tell me if its possible to upgrade the dashboard (icar) software on the 645CI
I know you can add additional maps for nav but as mine is 9 years old it looks very dated
Ideally I would also like to play my music via USB stick using itunes format or any other format.
Any ideas
Thanks
bob

It's not just a software update. Your car currently has CCC, you need to upgrade to CIC. Not an easy or cheap upgrade. Search for CIC retrofit and you'll find info on the work involved.

There have been several members that did the upgrade. You will need around a 1000.00 in used parts, then the labor & coding cost. Search CIC upgrade on the 5,6, & 7 series forums.

Good Luck!

Having just completed that upgrade I can tell you that it's closer to $2,500 + USD and a lot of patience and work to get it done. The actual installation is not that bad, but you'll need to find the parts and cables, modify some harnesses, change some connectors, and most of all have the car coded so it knows that the new CIC is in there.

There is an amazing fellow in Poland that can remotely code your car and even sell you an entire kit to get it done. You will pay more but it will work and be a much easier install.

Patryk finished the programing my car when I got stumped, and is the best on the planet.
