So, I have two questions. First some background. My car is in storage for the new few months (winter, yuk)
I have a 12/07 build E92. Just received the new idrive controller from Patryk. After I installed the new Euro Headlight switch for the rear foglights (a breeze) I felt inspired so I tried to installed the new controller knob. Before to took all the hardware off the old console I simply plugged in the one wire for the controller, nothing else. And low and behold, no go. Switched back to the old controller and repeated it. It works fine.

Here are my two questions:
1. Is there a way to see the SW ver before I go to the dealer?
2. Is this a software only issue or do I actually have to connect all the other connections for the ashtray, power, EDC and DSC?

Suggestions would be very welcome.
