Navigation 2011 DVD, is this the right one?

I need to order a US DVD for my Nav system. Can anyone verify for certain that this one below from www.getBMWparts.com is the correct one for a 2008 E92 M3 with the indash navigation? Just want to make sure I order the right one. They told me I needed the "2011 DVD MOST bus"

Also what is the the CIC High Navigation it's refering to below?

Copied from link below for details.

The item that you referenced is correct for your M3.

MY08 M3's utilize a DVD based navigation system. MY09 and newer M3's utilize a hard disk based navigation system. So, to update an '08, you simply buy a new DVD. Updating '09's and newer requires a trip to the dealer. Both methods have their pros and cons.

A few more thoughts. Used (and occasionally, new) BMW navigation DVD's are readily available on eBay. You just need to ensure that what you're buying is an original OEM DVD, not some copy that was burned by the seller. Look for the hologram around the center opening. Also, navigation updates are primarily focused upon merchant updates (restaurants, hotels, gas stations, etc) rather than upon updates to actual roads. If you don't travel very much or live in an area that is confusing to navigate, the expense to update your system may not be necessary.

I hope this info helps!

"CIC" is the new since 2009 iDrive system. Yours is "CCC".
