The question still remains, are the wiring there if you did not order the NFC option?

Just ordered the retrofit kit from bmwpartspros so I'll let you know when I install it. I was gonna hold off because I'm working less and I'm trying to save money. But I noticed these are showing as discontinued on all the other BMW parts sites so I didn't want to miss out. $200 is a lot better than $500 and I wouldn't of used the hotspot anyways.

Maybe I'm the only one but I extremely rarely forget or lose my keys/phone/wallet. Probably shouldn't of said that...

It wasn't answered above. GreekCS was saying the wiring was there because of the NFC pad. We're now asking if the wiring is there if you don't have the NFC pad?

I think the problem is the NFC pad comes standard on all US market cars, so he assumed you already had the NFC pad. I didn't know it was an option in other markets either to be honest. It would seem the answer is no, but I did find an aftermarket option the other day during my search.

Thanks!
I'm about to dive into this as well. Just curious if you tried the NFC card after installing?

Total cost: $120 Shipped from EU
Just curious... did you try the NFC card afterward?

Out of interest did it come with any connecting wires or connectors or was it just the pad itself? Also was the antenna amplifier included or already in the car?

Haha don't get pissed at me just cause you can't use a search engine. Way too many lazy fuckin people these days. All you have to do is search the part number.

Just to update: did it today. Takes about 5-7 minutes. You only have to unplug the rear usb plug to slide the cup holder out of place, and then the NFC tray is accessible to pull out. Wireless charging tray slides right in. Still have no idea how to code reminder though (using bimmercode). Purchased from bmwpartspros.com.

looks like there have already been four iterations of this part. I am curious what is being revised and if there is an even newer part.
