Hi. I'm from Poland and I've just bought 2005 E46 330Ci from Japan and I've just successfully managed to change FM radio frequency range to OCE, with the help of instruction from this thread :) 

But... I still don't understand why my MK4 radio displays completely different menu (strange interface) than EUR BMW versions. In my trunk I don't have DVD reader for Navigation. Just two "modules" visible: HDD NAVIGATION SYSTEM and PC CARD slot. Can I somehow upload new MK4 EUR firmware via PC CARD/SD Card emulator to get "normal looking" menu?

Here is how it looks: https://imgur.com/a/lR529Ua

Hi guys,

I have a 2011 E91 320i imported from Japan with a CIC radio unit. I have modified the Vehicle Order to Australian radio & language (852 to 853 & 807 to 810). This appears to have kind of worked, I can manually tune to the full NZ range, however the stations don't all show up under FM like they should. When I set RADIO_COUNTRY back to 'japan' I do get the few stations below 90MHz showing normally, but when I change to 'australien' I don't see then anymore, even though I can manually tune to them. It isn't the end of the world but would be nice if it was working properly. I have attached the CIC coding from NCS-Expert.

It also seems like the reception isn't as good at the higher frequencies, does anyone know if the antenna is identical or could there be a difference to the local market???

Thanks,

Michael

Hi Bikram, 

its very easy. You need the right cable and bmw software for coding. Would have helped if you were based in Wellington. Hopefully someone on this forum can help and located in your area. :)

A big thanks to you Jochem.  I’m new to the Mini.  Was about to rip out the dash facia to get to the back of the stereo to install a FM band expander.  I scrolled down the google search page a little and found you post on the Simple reprogramming of the radio and Voila, done in a few minutes. Awesome.  👍🏻
