New Idrive head unit

Hi,
I have a 2007 bmw x5 3.0
My I drive went out. no sound, alerts, etc. its non nav
took it in to the dealership and my SA said that I need to get my head unit replaced and they gave me a estimate.
I want to see if I can find the part cheaper online as long as its oem.
Does anyone know of a website that sells the head unit for the Idrive?
Thanks in advance

You can find one on Ebay in the $600-800 range.

Going to the dealer past warranty not a good idea. All they do is mindlessly replace parts hoping to nail the root cause. It can be expensive. Should at least try to get it repaired, I am sure there are shops that know what they are doing..

Agree, unless you can get the part to repair cheap, consider an upgrade.

OP- did you get a part number? Sometimes Ive seen "It's a new head unit- $4000"...only tossed out to see if you are stupid. Then once you agree, they actually figure out what is really wrong.

Hi
I didn't get the part number but it may benon the invoice. The price for new head unit with upgrade is $1450 at the dealership.
I am expecting a email or phone call from the SA who was working with me on Monday.
could it be just the system needs reprogrammed or a upgrade?

Checking the fuses,finding independent shop,sending the unit for repair are all solutions that will cost way less than this estimate.

Check out www.circlebmwparts.com. They had the best prices around, even besting my BMWCCA discount, when I purchased some accessories for my recently acquired 2012 X50i.

Good luck!
