I sent the PN over to my guy to find the part.

Now we need the new AC control panel that changes to white during the day...

Saw it in a buddy's M4 last night and it looks great.

That AC control panel is EUR 800 in Germany, plus it needs coding.
I think that's a mod not worth the money.

I can confirm that the whole cost of this mod is less than 50eur.

I am in Poland and the dealer quoted me ~47eur.

If anybody is interested in buying that I can help you. Just send me a PM.

Waiting time for the parts is max 4 days here.

Ordered the parts and waiting for them, thank you for posting that topic because the matte black in my car is driving me crazy since I saw the gloss.

anyone in the US, what dealer are you finding that ordered it for you? I've tried 5+ local dealerships, and they've all told me that the part # is too new, has no price listed, and there are none in stock anywhere / they can't order it.

Just checked with my dealer today, same thing. I think it's not that they aren't willing, most probably just don't have it updated in their systems yet. He checked everything and finally found it in their systems, but said the same thing that it didn't have a price yet and showed none in stock anywhere.

It's probably harder to order these parts from overseas. Here in Germany it's not a problem with the right part#, I know that there are 50+ pieces in stock in Dingolfing.

Figures that Technic was somehow able to order it, unless he just bought it from the UK.

Just ordered from bimmertech for $82 shipped to the US. Not sure why the crazy markup , but as it's not available in the US yet, I'll suck it up.
