1. His kit was cheaper because he came from NBT not CIC.

NBT kit starts at $2200, CIC kit starts at $2700.

2. He took advantage our of Black Friday/Christmas promotion which was heavily advertised.
Thank you for the clarification. His post implied he got a special discount.

How did you retrofit the G30 touch screen to the F10? Like how did you get it fit? Will be doing NBT EVO to my 2013 535xi soon and if I can retrofit the G30 screen I will!

Indeed, that was the most challenging part in my F10 as well, especially if using an ATM emulator and a quadlock extension yo not cut carís harness.
Do you have more pictures with the g30 screen installation under the trim? Have you cut some parts?

I am currently awaiting my unit. I ordered from Europe for substantially less than what some vendors charge.

Someone who has done this retrofit, can you confirm if the rear view camera resolution is improved at all? I don't know if on the NBT the quality of the picture is a camera limitation or if it's an NBT screen limitation.

If camera, I wonder how hard it would be to upgrade the camera to something with better resolution.

Hi, Im new to this site and I have been researching doing this retrofit for over 2 years now. I see you have successfully done so!!! Can you tell me what all has to be purchased besides the display itself and the adapter? I have only already purchased the display so far.

I'd still like to know the "round about" cost for this? I'd like the Apply Car play for my 2016 535 but $2700 doesnt seem worth it. Actually, $1000 doesnt seem worth it simply to be able to connect Car Play...

All this money spent is a waste. Keep it aside repairs.

As far as your connected drive and other services, what did you lose out on? BMW apps still work? Send destinations to your phone, gps tracking, flash lights , remote lock / unlock still work?

If CarPlay is the only thing you're interested in, you can get a CarPlay MMI box (unichip, binmertech,....). Much less invasive and less expensive.
