Sirius is not that really important to me, do you know whats the part number for the CID cable? My emulator is on the way and I believe the only essential cable I am missing is the CID cable.

People complain that the OEM cable is not long enough. So the EU has made some up just for retrofits.

You will also need this antenna amp for better reception. That is one gripe that occurs with NBT retrofits. Poor radio reception. My reception was OK but my traffic data was limited to local range. And it could not predict long range.

This is for Sirius. Left end goes to NBT. Right end goes to Antenna connector in trunk

Just ordered a complete kit from Bimmer Retrofit.com and waiting for it to arrive. Actually, can't wait for the install. Anyone have a diagram of the MOST Bus and how the connections are setup in the junction box in the left rear C Pillar next to the seat? Wanting to make sure I disconnect and re-route/connect correctly.
