Default ? about E92 M3 Nav Update

Alright so i just got a question regarding the CIC reterofit Nav upgrade for a e92 M3. So i plan on getting an e92 M3 soon and i tried finding one that is 09 and above because i kno those have the newer iDrive system. But i found a deal on an 08 e92 M3 so it has the older iDrive. So getting to the question lol, If i bought this M3 and decided to do the CIC reterofit Nav upgrade, would it still have the BMW M Drive? Would i have to get it from another M3 or what?

Thanks!

You will still have M-drive. My first e9x was a 2008.

Just my opinion, but, I don't think it's really worth doing the CIC retrofit upgrade. The newer, post 2008 system is already outdated looking compared to the new BMWs. It would just make you a little less obsolete. In my 2013, I have the same one that's in the 2009. Other than cosmetics, it's not that big of a deal. When I had my 2008, I looked into doing a retrofit CIC system. Back then it was near $4000 if you can find the parts used. Maybe people have figured it out and made it cheaper by now, I don't know. You can probably find a 2009 for $4000 more than a 2008 and have everything already integrated. Good luck anyway!

Thanks for the information! I agree with you. It is not worth it really. It would be better to just try finding a well priced 09 model! But if i cant and i end up getting an 08, i will see if i can find a good deal on a system. A buddy of mine has a 07 335i and he did it and he said he just got it from a BMW that was in a junk yard. But i just wanted to be sure that if i do decide to do it, i would still have the M drive. Thanks for the info!

I recently transitioned from an '08 (now for sale) to an '11. I really don't think the new nav is all that much better than the old. They definitely look different but, honestly, nearly all of the functionality I have in the newer car was available in the old. Frankly, I don't really what all the fuss is about :shrug:

Retrofitting CIC to a CCC car: not worth it IMHO.
Either get a stock CIC car from the get go and be happy with that or if you must retrofit, go straight to NBT.

But NBT doesn't function properly in an M3. No shift lights, poor radio reception, no key memory settings, no option to fit touch controller etc

Do some reseach, I'm pretty sure they have these retrofit 100% figured out by now (incl. touch controller).

I've done the research. It's not great in an M3. Do you have a photo of the touch controller fitted neatly into an M3?

I was under the impression that people like bimmerretrofit could perform/provide a fully integrated and functional E9X NBT retrofit. I could be wrong!

Sadly, The reality is different. The Cic/combox conversion is far better integrated for the e92 M3. Too many issues with NBT to make it feasible.
