in the boot of my 335i m sport cabriolet there is a module - on the opposite side from the battery
it has been submerged in water - the stereo is not producing any sound nor are the parking sensors
does this module control anything else or is it just an amplifier?
Expert:  Steve replied 1 year ago.
Is there a part number or text you can read off the module?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
unfortunately not - the mechanic took it away
BMW have quoted £800 to replace it
i don't want to spend this plus fitting and programming if its only a sound amplifier

Is that all it is - nothing else relating to I-drive?

That unit is just the amplifier.
