Latest iDrive for F30?

I'm looking to upgrade the hardware, what is the latest system I can buy, and the latest software version?

Thanks!

I have a 2013 328i. It had the tiny 6 inch screen with a very old version of idrive. I installed the NBT EVO and now have ID6 with nav, carplay, and the larger 8.8 inch screen. It cost $3k total.

You need a screen, infotainment computer/DVD (NBT EVO), and the controller. Also a bit of coding.

You mean all of them? I can't just buy the computer and use my existing screen and controls?

Depends on your current setup. Some may need a new mic cable, display cable for the screen, replacement USB cable and Bluetooth Antennas, new wiring if you are retrofitting the touch knob and of course coding.

If the unit came from Europe, you will also need the region switched to North America by loading the appropriate map update.
