    Good day. I just imported a 2009 BMW 320i from Japan. It comes with iDrive. The FM frequencies run from 76-90Mhz only, since that is what Japan allows. I've searched for advice on how to convert the Radio's Service details to other regions but all the blogs and forums I have found so far relate to vehicles without iDrive (turn on/off radio, press M or SEL or INFO button etc, none of which are applicable or possible with iDrive. Has anyone found a way to to the conversion without needing to buy new accessories, software, equipment etc? Thanks in advance.... H.L.

    P.S. Further research tells me that the iDrive model is the iDrive Professional Navigation (CIC)

    Perhaps a picture of your present HU would help.

    You might want to get in touch with bimmercoder as I think he can reprogram the radio for you since your unit has an I drive system. I seen him coding the mercs that has this similar issue.

    Good luck.
