    F10 COMBOX Retrofit

    I've spent the best part of yesterday doing some research on retro-fititng a com box to my July 2010 F10 with the Business audio, bluetooth handsfree phone and Motion Sat Nav (UK version), and It's been hell! So in an attempt to keep all the information in one place and for future researchers I thought I'd start a topic in here. I'll be asking one question at a time in order to bulid up a step by step guide at some point. Here's the first one. This is what I know so far - 1 - I can retrofit another combox in place of the unit installed in the boot of my car. With the appropriate coding to the Head Unit/Combox this will enable me to stream Bluetooth audio and add a USB/Aux socket to the armrest to enable a USB audio device to be used. This is functionality I don't have fitted to my car as standard. This is what my current 'Comm unit' looks like, it's installed in the boot on the left (N/S RHD) of the car. You need to remove the boot trim to reveal it. Apologies for cropping the top of the photo, but there is a multi way connector attached to the top of unit too. Now my first worry is that in other forums I have read much information is given about replacing two units (MULF & TCO), now this is clearly only one unit, that looks an awful lot like other comboxes available to purchase. So my first question is this - Can I just replace this unit with another to obtain the functionality that I want (adding the additional wiring/socket for the USB/AUX into the armrest)? Also I'm confused to which part number the combox should have to offer Bluetooth audio and USB audio and still offer bluetooth telephony. Although the answer to this first one will only be relevant to my car. THANKS in anticipation FuzzyEdges.

    Heavy rain, Water leak

    Just a post to say thanks for this information. This forum is a great resource and I have stopped my car leaking too. I would have wasted too much time sealing the rear passenger door if the true answer wasn't on here.

    Just popping in to say 'Hi' before asking lots of silly questions elsewhere. Regards, FE.
