Why does no one have NBT Evo(5.0/6.0)?

I tried to do some research and see if anyone has installed the latest idrive system in their cars and haven't been able to find anyone who has done the retrofit. Any reason why? Or am I just not using the right keywords in my search?

NBT has been done, EVO has come issues running properly in E series cars with the emulator last I checked.

NBT EVO works perfectly fine in E-Series cars. Getting it coded is the tricky part.

I'm currently running NBT and dont quite feel the need enough to go buy another screen etc to update to EVO yet.

Contact bimmerretrofit.com if you want the easiest solution.

Is there a screen available that works with EVO and fits properly in our screen enclosure?

Just takes a few modifications. Same as NBT. There isn't anything "plug and play". You need to make one display out of the two.

I prefer to use X3 displays.

According to BR there is no touch screen option for our cars because that's only available on 10+ " screens. Is that true?

I reached out to bimmerretrofit but haven't heard back yet. Do you know if they only supply components or can they arrange for an install as well? I'm looking to go from CIC to EVO.

Looked into this for myself to get CarPlay functionality and while the pricing wasn't bad, I still haven't gotten up the courage to go down this road with a car that has existing iDrive. Seems like the install is more straightforward in a car without it, but I could be mistaken.

Go find the thread that Mike Benvo posted a photo in...the wiring work to retrofit NBT (and I would assume NBT Evo) is ridiculous.
