E87 cic satnav idrive retrofit

Post by v-spec » Mon Feb 15, 2016 7:08 pm

Hi All

Im sure you've seen this type of thread before, and i am hoping some of you may be able to help me.

I plan to do a retrofit cic installation in my e87 118d m sport. It came with a standard BHU and a storage bin in the Dash.

I have just got this:

image hosting 5mb


Image
uploading images



Now im not actually sure what i have or what it does?

its supposed to be a BMW 1er E81 E87 LCI Facelift Navigations system Business CIC MID

Im thinking its just a basic sat nav unit.


What i want is usb, aux input, parking sensors, i drive, gps etc etc

now looking online such as these:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/BMW-e87-e82-e ... XQj9xRlg6U


The screens seems bigger on these particular models.


My question is this:

What do i have and what can i expect?

can i buy something like this:

http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/141896284480? ... EBIDX%3AIT

connect it to the screen and im good to go?

yes of course i need to code it blah blah and get all the cables, all something i need to figure out and learn

Hoping one of you can lead me in the right direction.

:)

Thanks

if i want to do this im going to have to wire this thing up, get the trim for the headunit and the idrive contoller.

Is there a unit that has everything built in i.e usb, bluetooth etc without the need for a seperate combox?

Is it even worth me installing what i have now? Looking at the back of stereo there is no other connections? some of the other units i see online have extra connectors:

it's really not worth retrofitting what you have purchased! That is the revised MASK..... very last of the business CCCs - the give away is the fan on the back.

Same size screen but seems to have the idrive/cic?

Thinking its possible, maybe I just get a different source unit?

I wouldn't fit that, it's not CIC and pretty basic.

Nope, you got a unit that is just before the newer CIC businesses came out.... these are usually found in the E60s.

Like I said, the giveaway is the fan on the back & the plug on the screen is like a rectangle.... the CIC versions are round & purple.

Absolutely no no point fitting it as its rubbish.

Is it worth installing? wondering what hacking i can do, whether i get a new source unit and use that on the screen? Why would it have the newer controller?

or should i just sell it on and save for modern cic unit?

Thanks

It's the business nav & not worth installing.

So who on this forum has done a cic retrofit?
Can someone give me a simple breakdown of what parts I need and what is involved?

I can source a professional headunit with a hard drive, controller and screen for around £400-600.

Ive got a matey that works at bmw parts so can get cables and the front fascia etc.

I'll need a centre console that houses the idrive controller, seen these on ebay for around £40-70

My main concern is the o.e wiring harness, does this need changing?

Any help on what to buy and look out for would be appreciated.

Thanks
