For those of you that want touch screen have you actually tried it out in person? Not trying to scare you off of it but the idrive controller integration is much nicer than touch screen.

Where I sit in the car it's actually a pain in the ass to reach and touch the screen.

I highly recommend you get a loaner car and try it out before committing to it just because its new and shiny.

Here are some pics from my SC E90 M3
Mike, I have a '13 E92 M3. Do you know if this retrofit can be added with front PDC and rear camera retrofit?

FYI:

- pre-LCI displays (NBT) are 9V/APIX1
- LCI displays (NBT Evo/EvoII) are 12v/APIX2

What this means is that for those that want to upgrade their NBT to NBT Evo require either to replace the screen with a LCI model or code the NBT Evo to output APIX1 and the rest of the APIX1 parameters and a voltage regulator (12-9V) and then keep the pre-LCI screen. Otherwise there will be no video after the swap.

You can send me your money instead and you will be as satisfied as having CarPlay in your iDrive.

It is that useless.

EVO update to e90 NBT upgrade

I installed an NBT (non-EVO) upgrade to my 2006 E90 a couple of years ago, and I am considering updating it with an NBT EVO. I have a couple of questions:
1. Can I use my current NBT screen with the EVO (obviously no touch screen) ?
2. I have the iDrive touch controller, can it be used for pointing in the display?
3. Ideally I would only replace the NBT itself and the retrofit adapter. Am I missing something obvious.
Thanks, Bjarne

1) it needs to coded and a voltage adapter, like this.


https://www.ebay.com/itm/BMW-F10-F25...r/254378936520

2) Depends on where you version and where it's connected. Early NBT used K-CAN for touch controller connection and was switched to K-CAN2 when touch was introduced. If you actually have a touch controller, it should be ok.

3) I suspect your combox/connected drive isn't working, but if it is, it will not work with the NBT EVO retrofit. That needs an ATM unit. In theory, besides the combox, NBT-EVO unit and retrofit adapter would most likely be everything, but as you are doing a retrofit of a retrofit, there might be some unexpected issue.

See here if you want Connected Drive:

A little off topic but I figure there might be some overlapping relevance to those that are upgrading between generations; I believe the iDrive 4 Evo uses the APIX2 screen; do you know if their is any resolution improvement between the Non-Touch & Touch Screen version for this specific model CID or are they the same?

Pretty sure both 8.8" screens have the same pixel count.
