That looks very interesting! Does this use the iDrive controller or do you have to mount a separate controller? Hopefully you will post back after your install and let us know how it went and how you like it.

I just upgraded last night. Purchased it on AliExpress, coded it with bimmercode and was done in 10 min!

Such a huge difference, I have owned my i3 for about a month now and couldn’t stand the small screen. I couldn’t stand the huge bezels on the 6.5” it drove me insane lol

Not only is it more aesthetically pleasing but the wider screen allows it to be more useful with all the options on the idrive. This will be especially true once I install CarPlay.
Do you have a link to where you purchased? I cannot find any on aliexpress.
