CarPlay fakra antenna

I'm looking to source the antenna needed for CarPlay. I tried two sellers off eBay however the items never arrived (maybe something to do with Covid as they were shipped from China)

Are there any other sellers that I could purchase the antenna from?

Thanks!

Same issue - shipping from china was going to take even longer than the already 1+ mo. wait time.

Ordered the OEM off ECS tuning for around $30 shipped to skip the wait.

If you have a BMW dealer close to you you can order it from them and they should be able to get it in a day or two. It will will be a little more expensive but it is an OEM part. That's what I did and I think I paid $30.

Thanks guys. I'll tried my local dealer but they couldn't locate the part. Anyone by chance have the part number. I also looked at the ECS tuning website and could not locate the part there.

Just search in the f80 section for "f80 oem WiFi antenna". One of the threads in the search results has a picture of the antenna and the part number from the ECS website. That is how I found it.

Spoke to someone at ECS, they don't appear to have them in stock anymore. I did find this one - https://www.bmweasycoding.com/product/bmw-wifi-antenna/

Is this what I need?
