Hello @Tiberius and all! Many apologies for hijacking the thread, but seems I'm trying to do exactly the same thing as @zayynn12 with the same years, so hoping your experience might help!

In essence I have a July 2016 F20 with 6.5" screen, looking to upgrade to 8.8". The F20 specific screen is WAY too expensive, but I understand the F30 displays should be ok. Looking at realoem.com, it seems that the 2 options are 65509387453 (up to July 2016) and 65506822626 (from July 2016).

@Tiberius I see you have used the 2nd one. I'm trying to figure out if either is fine, or if I should go for the 9387453, "from and to" date of which seems to match up to mine? I have the VIN if that would help. Any advice/suggestions would be great!

Can you code the resolution/installation with the Carly app ?

The 2nd one works if you have iDrive 5 or 6 and currently have a 6.5' screen with a symmetric case.

I configured the larger display using my Android phone and a £10 Bluetooth dongle.

The three parameter that I had to change for the display are multiple choice so there no "coding" involved. It's no harder than changing settings for shooting a video on a phone. The parameter I had to configure were:

1. Screen resolution
2. Screen type(brand)
3. Satnav resolution

Thank you, Tiberius! (late reply on my part, didn't get a notification of your response for some reason).

Alas, I can see without taking it off the dash that the back is not symmetrical.

Which means the 2nd one won't fit at all, or it will still be fine from an operating perspective, but just won't look neat and tidy at the back? The 1st one just seems very hard to find, although I'm not exactly in a great rush.
