BMW 5 Series E60 CIC / CCC Replacement & Coding

This E60 BMW 5 Series was having issues with the navigation and just a general lag when using the I Drive system even after running all updates we were unable to restore the speed and usability that the system should have.

The Customer had purchased a used CCC unit for us to fit, code and programme.

The easiest way to visually tell if you have BMW CIC or CCC is to look at the DVD slots.

  • Two slots CD and DVD it means you have a CCC UNIT
  • If you have only one CD slot it means that you have the BMW CIC unit. In this case, the navigation maps are stored in an internal hard drive.

If you are having issues with your Idrive or CCC and CIC please feel free to get in touch, GEL Automotive are fully equipped with BMW ISTA D and ISTA P to diagnose, programme, code and retrofit. We are based in Saxmundham Suffolk but are able to provide a mobile service for diagnostics and some coding functions.
