hello All, a question, I have a F54 2016 and some of the led's die in my central 6.5' display (with Satnav integrated), I'm planning to update it with a 8.8' one the seller is giving me the whole unit I mean the display and the frame (not the brain); my question is: will this fits into my mini the part I have is 9279424 6.6'' and the one I will have is 9294316 8.8''? I know I need to code it with Bimmertech or Carly? or which parts should I pay attention to be able to retrofit it? thanks a lot

Welcome to the forum.

I can't comment in terms of physical bits for an F54, however there is a writeup of someone completing this upgrade on a BMW F46, which is the same in terms of coding, ECUs, etc. as a Mini F54/F56: DIY Guide: How to upgrade your 6.5 inch screen to 8.8 inch screen for your F45/F46 (BMW 2er Active/Gran Tourer)

I use E-Sys rather than Bimmertech or Carly for coding & programming.
There are download links and instructions here: Coding: (No Request) Latest Software Links

Good luck!
