Upgraded Electronics Project Complete

1161 13
I just finished modernizing my 2006 650 with upgraded electronics. Replaced the CCC with a CIC, new screen, new iDrive controller, backup camera and MMI that provides CarPlay. Purchased the kit from BimmerTech. Very pleased with the end result. Makes the car feel almost new again.

Nice job. I did mine years ago and never regretted it.

FYI there is actually a different AC control panel for the CIC. Rather than MAX and Rest there are passenger and drivers buttons and it does work differently. I may have a spare if you're interested.

yes, I did the install myself.

No coding but there are some wiring changes needed.
Does the updated AC / ventilation controller require coding to the vehicle or it is completely plug and play?
This is a very long thread but somewhere in here ire the wiring changes.

I think I put in the extra +12v from a jumper from the same connector or another connector on the same panel, but yes there is also another change from one pin to another I think on the blue connector.
Yep! You have to tap a hot wire. I think I used the emergency flashers and run it to the ACC controls. Seems like there was anther change but I don't remember now. A quick search will get you a DIY to update to IHK2
