You can do this but, need the software, cables etc. I don't know of any other way than this or the dealer. I do know that if the software is of an older version, the new controller cna't be identified by the car and won't work. Know this because that's where I am. Have to wait till later to do this.
cool thanks, I dont' think my i-drive software has ever been updated since 2008.
