Hi. long shot
can i ask you, did you have to remove trim and a big job to open or did you get it done by someone?
Is the idrive button working and steering wheel? does it have bluetooth? i dont have bluetooth/mic in my e60 and would like this as a solution.
does it connect to the phone to get internet so can use waze? and easy to input addresses?

OEM Style Android Screen Install E63
So I thought I would share some details on the Android OEM style Screen that I installed in my E63 to replace the rather dated 6.5" CCC screen that was originally installed. I had pondered a CIC (€1,200) or NBT (€2,200) upgrade but thought I would try this instead which worked out about €425 after import duty.
I bought the below to install, I chose this version over the many options on aliexpress as it seems the most discussed on some forums so there is some support available online beyond relying on the Chinese suppliers.
This unit is listed as fitting e60/61/63/64 and I can confirm that it fits perfectly in the e63 and everything is plug and play, no tapping of cables required.
The worth mentioning:
Overall 9/10 (point missing as newer hardware and android would be an improvement), would buy again and can recommend for anyone looking to upgrade their existing screen, particularly from CCC without navigation
