ID4 -> ID6 + Fullscreen CarPlay

I received my WLAN wifi antenna today to install on the back of my head unit (took 5 minutes) and had BIMMER-REMOTE.com code my 2016 M235i to ID6 and Fullscreen CarPlay. I used my black MHD ENET Adapter and ethernet cable and everything was smooth and painless. Would definitely recommend using his services and will be back in the future if I find anything else

It's so nice to finally have modern tech!!

I didn't know that ID4 machine was capable of running ID6. I read somewhere in the past that hardware was not capable. Is there any sort of device lag upon flashing?

Curious also as to the WIFI antenna that I am reading about, is there any special price that includes the Wifi antenna & flashing procedure? I might be interested if so.

There's no lag when using CarPlay Fullscreen. System doesn't lag at all. The only downside may appear is when using OEM Nav on long distances, other than that it works really great which was already confirmed by hundreds of our customers.
You can check our video how it performs.

When it comes to WiFi antenna you can get any from Amazon/Ebay/Dealer.
OEM Part number: 61119278133

This post grabbed my attention, so I reached out for more info. I was pleasantly surprised to find that my late build Ď15 was compatible. He worked with me while I sourced a decent PC (took me a few tries), and the whole process was easy. Was mostly interested in CarPlay, but the update to ID6 is an awesome bonus! Itís a legit upgrade/update at a great price!

Really cool update, so you only flashed the software? No need for upgrading the head unit or the screen?

Definitely interested in this upgrade, looks perfect! How hard was it to install the WiFi antenna? Do you need to remove the vents/radio to do it?

I have a late 2015 M235i so probably similar to yours
