If you code your CIC to output analog then you will be doing the same thing as buying the mObridge unit to take the digital inputs to your current OEM amp and convert them to analog.
Once the OEM amp is bypassed/replaced then aftermarket amps are required.
The main difference between coding and the mObridge unit is that you will lose the 7-band EQ at the iDrive screen if you code the unit to HiFi.
