Sounds like a lot of work. So for sure, at minimum I have to replace the whole idrive 6 unit to the idrive 7? Is this a software upgrade or an actual hardware upgrade? Is it easy/ doable? How about coding? What else would be needed? I'm thinking it's better off if I just upgrade to 6WB digital instrument cluster to save myself the headache.
