March 2013 build, yet I have CIC not NBT?

I just got my car a week ago. A very nice 2013 328i m-sport package, fully loaded. The car has a March 2013 build date, but somehow I ended up with a CIC navigation and not NBT. I thought the cut off was September 2012? I'm really confused.

How did that happen?

Only 2013 AH3 have NBT, then all 2014-on 3- and 4-Series have NBT.

Right. NBT started in July, 2013 on the '14 F30's.

For F30, markets outside North America switched to NBT beginning November / December 2012 production. BMW NA and Canada waited until July 2013 production (MY14).

Oh CIC is not so bad! Still nicer than what you get in the likes of Lexus today.

Agreed back when I got my F30 at the end of 2012, the iDrive seemed to me just as good if not better than most of the competitive cars I looked at (Mercedes Benz, Audi, Cadillac, Volvo, Infiniti, and Lexus).
