BMW Professional Head unit

Post by Wullie71 » Wed Sep 06, 2017 12:37 pm

Hello
Has anyone had any experience with AliExpress, They seem to be selling BMW Professional head units for about £100 shipped.
Do you think they will be able to be coded ? anyone ?

I bought one. It's working perfectly for a year now. Didn't need to code anything, plug and play.
The integrated bluetooth for phone calls is also working just fine.

I just ordered one. I was an AliExpress virgin until then.

Fingers crossed at £82 all in and claimed "new".

Can someone kindly link the mic and usb cable I need? There seem to be a few options.

Many thanks original poster and everyone else.

Thanks Wullie, when do you plan to get it all installed? I'll hold off until you confirm it's all worked for you :)
