Question Andream 8.8" Head Unit for F20/F21

Hey all,

Just bought my first BMW, a 2012 116i. Only after I bought it did I realise it was a CIC model with no enhanced Bluetooth with no combox - bummer.

My goal is to upgrade straight to the latest and purchase a head unit which has a big screen (I currently have the 6.5") and can give me android auto and apple carplay. Initially I was drawn to the Andream MMI Prime but I've seen for 100 more, I can purchase a bigger screen and get the same functionality.

Has anyone used this and has any reviews? https://www.android-car-dvd.com/coll...-f21-2013-2017

I was more than happy to dish out the 300 ish price tag but saw the site says this is for LHD only and being based in the UK, I have a RHD. They don't seem to have any RHD units on the site. Would there be issues if I install the LHD in my car?

Open to here suggestions for any other units too!

Hi, somebody asked this question and they answered that RHD is NOT compatible

I'm looking for a RHD alternative too

Ive given up with Andream. opted to find another AliExpress/baba alternative. Ordered one, yet to receive it, fingers crossed it's as good as I hope!

I actually had one of this installed i believe, i cant say its andream for 100% cause i went to someone to install it but it's definitely a LHD model because he cut the back to modify it to fit although telling me it's RHD lol

But if you just take a mini drill cut it, it will work.
