Thinking of making a switch

Hey guys,

Have the opportunity to get in to a loaded 08 E92 at a great price. Would be trading in my 2011 135. Love the car and thinking I'm going to do it if the dealer and I can make a few adjustments on the numbers. Has anyone with an 08 changed out their iDrive for the new one? I really prefer the new iDrive I have in my 1, and at the price I'd be getting the 08 it would make more sense to add it in later than step up to an 09 model year.

Any thoughts about the switch?

Also, this car isn't CPO, has 21k on it, and is a DCT. Any high mileage DCT owners want to chime in?

Patrys on this forum can apparently do CIC retrofits. PM him for cost and details.

I did the CCC to CIC swap a couple of years ago... IMO, wait and get a 2009 M3 at least.
