Another way to tell is you'll have a dvd drive below the cd drive. It also requires a mapping dvd in the drive to function.

Its not sometimes. It depends on which version of IDrive you have. CCC vs CIC. Using the info you posted, you have a production date of 2007. Which should mean you have CCC, which is a dvd based Navigation System. CIC uses a harddisk system. Now, there may be some differences since you are in Ireland. This is a mostly US based forum. Not that you're not welcomed here, you are very much. In 2008 there were changes done to the E60. This change was called LCI, so pre-LCI IDrive is CCC and LCI IDrive is CIC. This maybe different for european models, but I haven't heard of that being the case. If this is indeed the case you'll have a USB connector in the glovebox and that is how you would load the map updates. You'll also need an FSC code. I hope this clears some things up.

If it has one disc drive and looks like the menu I posted, then you do need the DVD. ebay.

I'm not really sure. I have never seen one say "OBC" on it. What is in that menu??
