- A BMW NBT iDrive system was designed to work in a BMW F and/or G series. These were never designed to work in a BMW E series. Therefore these products must be considered as Experimental Products when retrofitting to a BMW E Series and are provided strictly "as-is" without any other warranty or guaranty of any kind. All other warranties, express and implied, are hereby expressly disclaimed INCLUDING WARRANTIES OF MERCHANTABILITY AND FITNESS FOR A PARTICULAR PURPOSE. GERMANIKS.COM shall not be liable for any indirect, special, incidental, consequential or punitive loss or damage of any kind, including but not limited to lost profits (regardless of whether or not GERMANIKS.COM knows or should know of the possibility of such loss or damages).

- Furthermore while every possible effort will be made to help you run your NBT system in your car as smoothly as possible, we are not responsible for bugs or software restrictions developed by BMW or its agents, that your "NBT iDrive system" might have before or after shipping. If a known or unknown bug is affecting your system, you can send it back to us at your own charge and we will update the software of your NBT iDrive system to a newer version in the hope this will eliminate the bug affecting your system.
BMW does not maintain a public list of documented bugs nor a change-log archive of "BMW NBT iDrive systems known issues or bugs" so we can not be aware of bugs unless an issue is reported to us.

- Some known issues we are aware at the time of writing related to BMW NBT EVO

iDrive retrofit in E series :

=> NOT COMPATIBLE WITH BMW E9x M3 Shift Lights (You will lose that feature)

=> IN BMW E9x M3 WITH EDC you will only have 3 DriveLogic settings available instead of 5

=> NBT EVO iDrive is not compatible with E series hands free microphones. You should change your E series microphone to a F series microphone

=> NBT EVO iDrive may not be compatible with all BMW E series TOP HIFI or Individual Audio sound systems. When the car is an early model, for example a 2004 E60 with HIFI option, you may no longer have the under seats woofers working, in that case, you will need to rewire them manually.

=> NBT EVO iDrive system is only compatible with BMW TRSVC and ICAM camera systems. The NBT EVO iDrive is not compatible with the older generation BMW camera system RFK typically found in 2007 BMW E70 and so on.

The NBT EVO iDrive system might be compatible with some aftermarket cameras but we are unable to provide any advice or recommendation on this, other than the camera must be using the NTSC format and handle 4.43Mhz color scheme.
