I came across a 2012 CIC head unit out of a 328 xi. I own a '08 M3. From what I understand this device will install into my vehicle but the unit will need to be coded to ensure I do not lose M-drive and other M specific features, correct?

Regardless of M or not, I think you need to code it anyway for it to work and an emulator?

Yeah I will have it coded. I just don't have any coding experience so I wasn't sure if the coding was flashing the entire unit to my specific car or like patch work.

Basic coding will make it your M3 CIC but no navigation or voice control will be enabled.

Correct.

Not just navi but voice, apps, satellite, or anything the original car had activated.

I would like to add I do not plan on updating maps. 2012 should be good enough for me. I'm strictly ensuring everything works properly.

You'll need an emulator to have NAV at all since the VIN check will not pass.
