    World class bodgery

    E60/1 Audio Replacement

    For those that may want to ditch the older CCC systems, and fit a double din unit in its place, there is this solution now: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Black-Facia-Car-Stereo-Radio-Adaptor-Wiring-Fitting-Kit-for-BMW/184069980773?fits=Car+Make%3ABMW&hash=item2adb6d0265:g:udgAAOSwGsheO1Vt You do lose your screen and idrive controller, and no idea about the rest of the display infographics!

    Apple car play/mirror phone.

    Unless you replace the headunit with a suitable android based unit, very unlikely. I don't think you can retrofit the NBT into an E6x, but even if you could it would be expensive.

    Leather conversion

    Nope, that's an additional option on the seats, and requires further parts, switches and coding - same with active seats

    Wiring harness e61

    Probably the looms in the tailgate hinges. Once fixed the errors will go away without any resets needed. Sencom make the best replacements

    Restraint systems gone bad

    I'd check the Battery Safety Terminal, as it sounds like it has gone open circuit hence triggering the airbag fault. You can buy a bypass kit and just remove the the connector to the battery and wiring in the bypass or just get a suitable resistor and do same.

    I replaced mine with a pair of Bosch Aerotwins and never had the problems as described above ...
