Fxx KOMBI (6WA or 6WB) in e70

Hello all,

I've been a lurker for years but have just finally registered for an account here.
I would like to retrofit 6WB & NBT to my E70. The NBT retrofit has been documented extensively by some of the wonderful people on this forum, but I can't find anyone else that has tried to install a Fxx KOMBI on a Exx chassis.

Would it be possible after an NBT retrofit?
My thoughts being that a CAN translator like BimmerRetrofit's NBT adapter would be needed.
I also plan to use an adapter from carsystems.com.ua to retrofit a F10 Msport steering wheel.

Many thanks in advance,
-- Ethan

Look at how delicious this looks...

Ethan never came back, never posted here again.
Scepticism and Animal Faith (1923)
Scepticism is the chastity of the intellect, and it is shameful to surrender it too soon or to the first comer: there is nobility in preserving it coolly and proudly through long youth, until at last, in the ripeness of instinct and discretion, it can be safely exchanged for fidelity and happiness.
(The Works of George Santayana p. 65)
