2016 F20 6.5 inch to 8.8 inch upgrade

Iím sorry if this question has been answered in a previous thread, but...

Can anybody tell the way to go about upgrading my 6.5Ē screen to 8.8Ē. I assume I have the NBT EVO ID4 as it is a 16 plate 1 series.

The only serial number showing up on the VIN check is 65509385202 and I canít find any for sale anywhere.

Is there other model numbers that are compatible?

Thank you in advance,

Lewis.

From the f20 guys, the f30 screens will work and are a direct swap. The only difference is that there will be a gap behind the screen as the f20 has a swoop in the back and the f30 screen is flat (From quick research, don't quote me on this!). They state you don't see it unless you're really looking for it. There are 3 versions of screens that are somewhat interchangeable

I have one listed for sale (65509387453) if this is the route you choose to go:

Hello thank you for the reply, thatís great, so will that part number be compatible with a 2016 f20 as itís not on the compatible list on a VIN check (even though it wonít be as it for a 3 series).
