I am very interested in this potential retrofit. I have a 2008, Dec 07 build M3. I've been in touch with Patryk about OEM parts for the work along with the proper coding for the parts to match my VIN. He also said that once the work was complete any future software updates could not be done with reversion to the older components. Has anyone had any issues with this in mind? What software type of things are we talking about? And lastly he also mentioned that BMW assist would not be available. I must admit ot likeing some of the features. Any thoughts on the good/bad side of BMW Assist.

How does this stuff mesh with say the Dinan ECU upgrade etc?

I am also considering doing this in a metered way. Install the bew idrove controller and ditch the older idrive controller for the new. I seem to re-call but can't find where that not all the functions worked properly.

Any comments or thoughts would be really appreciated.
