BIMMER RETROFIT normally ships goods within 5-7 business days after the order is placed by customer and payment received by BIMMER RETROFIT. Shipping times may vary depending on the products ordered. BIMMER RETROFIT will only ship complete orders, once all the parts are in stock. In the event that your kit consists of out-of-stock products, BIMMER RETROFIT may require additional time to prepare your order and in these special cases BIMMER RETROFIT will notify the customer of any shipping delays associated with these orders. All shipping dates given are based on estimates provided by suppliers and/or production lead times. BIMMER RETROFIT cannot guarantee shipping dates, since delivery dates are subject to change. If you need to receive an order by a specific date, please contact BIMMER RETROFIT for assistance. If you want BIMMER RETROFIT to ship partial orders (i.e. before all parts are received by us), we can do it, but additional shipping charges will apply.
Products purchased during any particular sale, are typically shipped within 7-10 business days after the end of the sale. If the order is placed after the sale is over, there may be additional delay in processing your order.
We do not ship to PO Box addresses.
We use TNT Express, TNT Economy Express or DHL Express to ship all domestic and international orders, unless a different service is requested by the customer at the time of placing the order, provided that the chosen shipping carrier is authorized to ship the goods ordered by the customer. A customer is required to provide a phone number for all orders shipped by TNT. For each shipment, a tracking # is provided to the customer within 24 hours after the order is shipped.
By default, all packages are shipped uninsured. You may purchase insurance from us for the full value of your parcel and freight shipment by sending us an email at firstname.lastname@example.org and paying the indicated charge when the order is placed.
We may only ship to a verified billing address, associated with the credit card.

Products and liability
Our products are intended to work with BMWs 2004 and later models (more detailed information is given in the "Product" section of our Website). Prior to any installations, it is highly recommended that the vehicle’s software is updated to the latest version at the BMW dealer. If the software is not updated prior to installing BIMMER RETROFIT’s products, incompatibility issues may be discovered and products may not function as intended. If this happens, BIMMER RETROFIT will not be held responsible for any direct or indirect costs, incurred by the customer. It is responsibility of the customer to check with his/her BMW dealer whether his/her warranty will be voided following the installation of one of BIMMER RETROFIT’s Products, before any Product is purchased and installed. BIMMER RETROFIT will not be responsible for any direct or indirect costs incurred by the customer if the customer's warranty is voided.
CIC retrofits for pre-CIC vehicles: for major visits to the BMW dealer, such as ECU replacement, CIC will need to be removed and replaced with the original head unit in order for the coding/programming work to be performed by the BMW dealer. Owners of other vehicles, please inquire. Please also inquire about other retrofits, if you are not sure.
NBT retrofits in E-series: BIMMER RETROFIT has successfully tested NBT retrofit in E-series in E8x, E9x, E7x and E6x models of BMW (there may be some exclusions in the BMW models). For E6x vehicles there are some known limitations due to differences in functionality between NBT and MASK/CCC/CIC systems. Most of these and other limitations have been resolved by BIMMER RETROFIT, however some bugs/limitations are possible when installing NBT retrofit in E-series. BIMMER RETROFIT continuously releases free firmware updates for eNBT Retrofit Adapter to fix any known bugs. To fix some limitations, hardware changes to eNBT Retrofit Adapter may be required; at their election, customer may purchase new eNBT Retrofit Adapter to solve any limitations that cannot be solved with firmware updates for current version eNBT Retrofit Adapter.
