- After sale support and support during installation

Some FAQs (Frequently Asked Questions):
1.What is Full Retrofit Coding, why is it required and how will it be performed?
Your vehicle is comprised of multiple electronic modules that seamlessly work together, while you are using your vehicle. When you replace your CCC (or radio) with CIC, your vehicle and the CIC must be “taught” how to recognize each other and how to work together correctly. This is done through remote coding by one of our engineers, who have been specifically trained to do this. They have unmatched level of experience and knowledge of BMWs and they will perform the coding, the way BMW would, so your CIC will integrate seamlessly into your vehicle. For remote coding you will need 3 things: (a) USB K+DCAN cable, (b) windows based laptop and (c) stable internet connection.

As a side note: Never trust an amateur to code your vehicle. In certain cases, CIC coding is straight forward. However, in other cases, it can be very tricky and more complicated. An amateur simply does not have the experience to do the coding correctly. There is a very high probability that your vehicle will become malfunctioning (or even stationary), and it will cost you quite a bit of money to get it fixed. Do the coding once - do it right - have a professional code your vehicle. For more information about buying from amateurs, please see the following link: Why you should never buy a CIC retrofit kit from amateurs... - BMW M3 Forum (E90 E92)

2.What is the difference between FSC code activation and PNP hardware activation?
Hardware activation uses our own certified PNP activation module for navigation, voice recognition and video in motion. FSC activation method uses BMW's OEM FSC codes for activation. The main difference between these activation methods is PRICE (FSC activation method is ~70% more expensive than the PNP activation method). PNP activation method is by far the most popular activation method, especially so if you have an older vehicle, for which CIC has never been offered.

3.What is the price of your CIC retrofit kit?
Our most current pricing is displayed on our website: BMW E6X SERIES CIC NAVIGATION ENTERTAINMENT SYSTEM HDD BASED
