How much is a good price for the Combox conversion?

Title says it all. I am in Las Vegas.

Good luck. Ive asked the guys that do this a million times and they either quote me two completely different prices, or never come down to socal to do the work. Ive been waiting 5 months for someone to email me back with a date and time to do said work, but alas... no one has contacted me back.

Is there anyone in LA/Orange county area that actually does this?

No idea, but somewhat related: I'm trying to get a price for 6NR retrofit for a Combox equipped 2011.5 E90. Haven't gotten any email responses from Patrys @ Bimmertech.

Isn't that about What you'd pay if you sold an 08 and bought an 09?

From who??? Something is not right! I'm pretty sure is $2000 for CIC conversion and $3300 with combox and probably 6NR.

Technic,

Can you please just fly out to Socal and do these BWM apps retrofits for us? How many of us would it take to make it worth your time? Im tired of waiting for those guys who say they offer it, but never follow thru.


Oh please help us!

BMW Apps retrofits have been delayed until BMW provides somehow the new 6NR FSC.

So even if I could fly out there -right now I cannot- there will be no possible Combox retrofits/swaps for 6NR for a while.
