Hi all,

Nice meeting you all. My name is Taisir Ahmed living in Sydney, NSW. I've recently become the proud owner of a 2006 BMW E60 and hence decided to join this group/forum. I don't have much knowledge on cars, and this is the first car I ever bought.


I did have an issue which I wanted discuss and get some help.

I have a 2006 BMW E60. I have the CCC in it. It is creating issues. Some of the symptoms are idrive freezing, sound dropping out, idrive controller spinning freely. Additionally, when I go to the bluetooth screen(when idrive is working) I can't seem to check/select the box in the bluetooth menu. I have checked the fibre optics in the modules and it seems the red light is flashing on all of them. I did go to a workshop to get it diagnosed and they mentioned issued with "Head Unit(Fibre Optics)" . They advised to replace head unit at a cost of AUD$1400 approx.

Now that workshop was the first time I went there and cannot tell for sure if that is what I need to do. Therefore, would like any advise/2nd opinion on what the issues might be.

FYI, as far as I checked the modules in the car trunk are: Amp, MULF(Bluetooh module, Visteon) and the TV tuner. In the front I have the CD changer in the Glove box. On the centre dashboard I have the CCC, CID, DVD and CD.

Can you please kindly help.

Thanks
Taisir
