Market value of the vehicle is irrelevant if you are keeping it for enjoyment.I have a 2005 530i with CCC professional headunit. I’d like to upgrade to CIC but prices for the kits are all over the place. Some are 2k which is not even close to being worthwhile on a car only worth 4K. Has anyone here done a retrofit?
True, and I do love driving it. Ive found the hardware set for 890 on eBay but I’d need to code it myself. Im tempted to go that route but I’d be bummed if I bought it and found that it wouldn’t work.Market value of the vehicle is irrelevant if you are keeping it for enjoyment.

Nice! Did you install it yourself? Did you need to do anything other than quick change in your Vehicle Order? I have a pre-lci, so I'm wondering if I will need to have modules updated in order for it to work. I have HUD on mine as well.eBay. sedwilkins is the seller.
he has one up now for $850. i gave him my VIN and he did the coding for the CIC. i just had to do the coding for the vehicle. changing its VO.
i also needed to buy a new video adaptor for my backup camera. you may also need to buy an emulator for vehicle in motion.
i was able to find a FSC decoder for free, so i could download the newest maps.
all of this is on the forums. it may take a bit to search it all down. mine is a 2008, so i did not need the LCI climate control cover.
So your HUD works just fine with CIC? I'm going to poke around the forums to see what else is needed. I haven't done coding with the BMW tools yet, but I'm a systems admin so I'm sure I'll figure it out. :rofl:yes, i installed it myself.
correct. you will need a FSC code to get updated maps anyway. not sure on the voice control, as putting in updated maps and the FSC code was the first thing i did after getting the CIC installed. do not pay for a FSC code. there are VIN decoders for getting FSC codes. not sure easy to find, but they are out there.
