Bimmertech is the way to go IMO

andream and bimmertech units are identical hardware and software stack - they just use slightly different software GUIs - has been proven in other threads.
id go the andream and save the $$, just did it on my M2 and happy with the outcome

Anyone recently bought any of these units and have one they would recommend, I am looking to get Carplay/Android Auto into my 2017 330i

I cant seem to find a link for an Andream unit which ships to Australia?

Ordered mine from eBay for my NBT equipped M4, should arrive next week.

Last one I ordered (for my E90 M3 with CIC) came from AliExpress, no problems.

So I installed mine yesterday , it took me 4 hours to do the whole thing . I have older CIC with pro nav , Routing the AUX cord took 1 hour as i had to hide it properly and remove the IPhone adapter that came with the car . I was sent the NBT unit but it works fine , so far good no issues .

Yes its worth it and works great . Car start and 30 seconds in its all ready to go switches automatically . Sound quality is same to my ears , I have turned off Loudness setting as it was distorting the sound and set the EQ to Rock preset and its fine for me . I think most complaints about sound quality are due to Loudness setting in MMI box .
