I have to go to a BMW official dealer in India to recode and BMW India WILL wash their hands of for the warranty in case there is an aftermarket product installed in the car.
1. Yes, the mObridge kit replaces the CD changer (CDC), which means that it needs the CDC to be active in iDrive software.
2. If you do not have a CDC, you'll need to get it activated by - the BMW dealer or an authorized Autologic shop. I seriously doubt there would be any competent Autologic shops in Mumbai.
3. Once CDC is activated, you can install the mObridge kit.
4. Warranty...it depends upon the country and dealer. You can always disconnect the unit (take less than 15minutes) before you get your car serviced at the dealership.

Quick question - did the iPod display the mObridge logo when plugged in? The most common step missed when installing is swapping the Power/Ground terminal pins in the MOST connector (BMW is reversed from mObridge) causing the fuse to immediately pop if not swapped beforehand.

Otherwise, there are a number of overseas BMWs using the mObridge systems.

Since you are already equipped with the CD/DVD Changer in the dash - you will not require coding.
