Hi Mate, I wouldn't say you have lost out I paid an extra £200 for that unit and a DAB unit and Camera (which I have not fitted) anyway, can you return it? 

 

If not back it on the F11 Facebook group for £300 and free P&P you will soon shit it!

So.......As one who doesn't know all these abbreviated model designations; what is the difference between NBT & CIC and what is LVDs?

NBT replaced CIC which replaced CCC.

They are the computer systems integrated into the infotainment.

 

Lvds is the low voltage digital signal cable system connecting head unit to display screen. In 4 pin and 4+2 pin, they are not interchangeable.

Given the year I'd think you have more chance it's NBT. Rather than go by what the display screen looks like, I think you're safer physically checking the connections.

On my 2014 the display output was identical to the CIC examples, yet a CIC Android unit wouldn't talk to the car. All the connections are the 6 pin type, so the seller is 100% I have NBT. Couple of weeks I hope to find out he was right.

I just wish BMW would have it in it's own module marked CCC, CIC or NBT.

You can check this via settings...

If you have NEXT written to your map data version you have a NBT headunit. If you have Premium you have CIC. Move and Motion are the Business head units.
