It needs at least NBT EVO ID4.
Works really good with our solution.

Anyone?

If not through him, is anyone aware of an alternative source, that they have used and are happy with the results/service, providing the same thing?

Oh! Well hell, sitting right in my face.

kubax86, I saw on your site that you provided options on the software side, but wasn't aware you also had access to the hardware side. You too have access to the headunit coded to the vin of my car?

Yes indeed, but couldn't get a hold of him, hence me looking for an alternative source. I am working with another outfit now that offers the same service and will see how it goes.

I had a similar experience. I went with steve@codemybimmer and had no problems with my unit (NBT to NBT Evo). I recommend him.

Yep, that is who I am working with, and I've been pleased with the exchange so far. Now just waiting to receive the new head unit.

It will work because both EVO ID4 and ID6 uses ATM for Connected Drive/GPS signal.

Yes, you will retain all connected services / navigation since your vehicle is a 2016 and equipped with ATM.

We can offer you a native iDrive 6 Retrofit kit , like the OP got from us originally, we have touchscreens in stock too!

Or we can offer our famous iDrive 6 Flash , remotely for your vehicle.

Let us know if you have any other questions.

Awesome! Can you PM me a quote for both by chance? I have been very interested in the upgrade, but a retrofit kit might be worth it too, I want a touch screen!

A question for anyone who's had this done - I got the letter about the update for the 3G cellular discontinuation, my car needs to be updated.

I've already had the ID6 upgrade done by EasyBimmerCoding - working great btw. I've read on the forums here if/when I bring my car to the dealer for the 3G update that my idrive will likely be flashed back to ID4.

Has anyone who has the ID6 flash taken their car in for the 4G update? What happened? Was your idrive put back on ID4? Did you have any issues having it reflashed back to ID6 after the update was installed?

I never had my car reflashed from ID6 > ID4 at the dealer but it was only taken in twice since upgrading. I never had them or was even told to have it converted to support 4G, either. So I may not be the normal experience here.
