Check the ETK, I think u may need a new headunit if u want to fit the combox cos the hardware structure is different between a CIC & L7 Entry headunit.
Sorry what is ETK?
I already have HU_CIC from factory if that helps.

ETK is BMW's Electronic Parts Catalog:

http://www.bmwetk.info/

http://bmwfans.info/parts/catalog/

http://www.realoem.com/bmw/select.do

You can also look around online and find the standalone DVD version for download, which is about 5Gb.

There is definitely not an FSC Code, as I do not have one, and I have Office.

Is the Country Controller the 8xx Option Codes, like 801 for Germany, and 812 for England? I can't find one in my VO, so I guess there isn't one for U.S.?

Is there any other impact of removing a Country Controller?

S8LHA is the VO to remove. From the 1st page on this thread there are instructions on how to add or delete VOs, or ask Shawn.

No experience coding the VO yet, so I try to leave that as my final option...

Did however talked to the local dealer, but they are not responding...

Ask Shawn? Why not ask clarence?

As ur car have 6.5" screen & radio professional, so u physically have a headunit called "L7 Entry" (infotainment platform shared by F20). CIC is only physically installed if u have professional nav.
I think wht's happening here is, as basic BT function is built into the L7 Entry HU, if u have 6NH then there's no combox. If u have nav pro then, as it doesn't have built-in BT, if u have 6NH then it'll come with a combox with some features disabled.
For the combination of L7 Entry + 6NK/NL, the BT hardware is not present in the headunit as a combox is present, hence a different HU p/n is present.

I think the coding side is fairly easy, but the hardware side is somewhat complicated, at least for me as I am not so much a hardware guy. There are a lot of variables depending on what you are starting with (BT, MULF, TCU, NAV, etc.) I leave that stuff to the more technically adept or experts like BimmerTech and Bimmer Retrofit. I know many people have done it though.

Here is the F30 Media Combox retrofit from BimmerTech for $725 USD:

http://www.bimmer-tech.net/shop/bmw-...a-pnp-retrofit

Here is the F30 Telematics Combox retrofit from BimmerTech for $988:

http://www.bimmer-tech.net/shop/bmw-...s-pnp-retrofit

It shows that if you have factory installed Bluetooth, there is an additional wiring set needed (or perhaps optional if you don't mind splicing wires) for $200 USD.

You can pick up a used Media Combox on eBay for under $350 USD if you want to go that route.

Not prewired for 6NF, as it's only for connecting to the sharkfin antenna (for better phone signal). 6NF has connection to both USB in combox & sharkfin simultaneously if u use a media cradle.
