Apple CarPlay kit for 2012 BMW 528i F10

Hi All,

I have a 2012 bmw 528i and looking to install Apple CarPlay into my car. I have checked with https://www.bimmer-tech.net/ and their recommendation based on my VIN number was to use the following Navigation Retrofit which is $2699 + installation:

NBT EVO ID5/ID6 Navigation Retrofit

https://www.bimmer-tech.net/shop/bmw...ation-retrofit

I was hoping for something similar to CarPlay MMI as listed below would work:

I came across following kit and contacted the manufacturer in China who indicated after checking VIN, dashboard pictures, etc. that this kit will work in my car. It is by Unichip also available on Amazon. Here's the video of installation:



Also following is amazon link:

I am located in Southern California. I will appreciate if you can let me know if this will be possible to get CarPlay to work in my car with one of the kits and not spending $$$.

Thank you

This wholesale version seems less but not sure if this is all the hardware you need.

Also there's a little research and feedback on it here https://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sh....php?t=1577804
