Climate Control Unit

I have a 2015 F30. Been seeing the climate displays but with the lettering/numbering appearing in white. Anyone know where I can get one? Attaching my current with the orange.

But your car must have IHKA3 so you'd have to verify it has that. This topic has already been covered extensively in these forums, so do a search.

Try searching using "IHKA3" in the search box. You might find posts in this section:

Good luck!

If you have orange led and not the switchable white, you do not have IHKA3.

You need to read this entire thread to retrofit everything.

So I'm told that I have it (the ability to switch lighting from classic (orange) to sport (white) is what I'm told is confirmation of that.

Is that not the case?

Correct.

If you can switch colors on the climate control unit you have IHKA3 in your car.

IHKA units do NOT have that ability.

you have a 2015 so you should have ihka3 already, you just need to replace the control head for one that has the bicolor leds and code it.

its one of the first things i plan to do when our 2015 arrives along with the LCI panel.

you need to swap back before taking the car to the dealer so dont get rid of the orange one
