Why do you replace the can bus cables to the IC? Is there a bcm level above which you have to change the cables to the IC?

For example if we upgrade bcm 86 to 87, is this change needed? Or is it needed for bcm 90 specifically?

With 86 or 87 is not necessary.

With 90 is mandatory.
Without these new CAN lines for the IC there is no communication with the other units, that is, nothing works.
We have experience from the origin of these modifications. (years)

Does it have to do with 90 having internal (virtual) gateway and the fact that you stop using the external gateway?

NO, that only applies to old Bluemotion with external Gateway and also want to install a BCM Max.

1) NO.

Once the fuse box is removed:
In the Fuse 57 slots there are two wires, one yellow / black and other yellow / green.
- Extract the yellow / black wire with the terminal extraction tool, cut the original terminal, strip and crimp in insulated blue terminal of the new black wire. As indicated in image 2.

Image

Do the same operation for fuse 58 with the yellow wire, as indicated in image 2.
Fuses 57 and 58 are no longer necessary.

2) Mandatory.

Your new Dimmer 1Z0941333 needs a new ground wire, so it is provided by the original green/brown wire with ground signal. Very easy.

1) The new light switch and the new BCM Max control the DRLs automatically, you no longer have to worry about DRLs (the button on the fuse box is no longer necessary). DRLs are mandatory, so they should be turned ON whenever necessary (automatically).

2) NO. Maybe it will have another unexpected menu, it depends on whether you are a good guy ... :lol:

Everything indicated in the images is mandatory. Do not make different plans taking personal initiative. Do exactly what is indicated in the images, it is very clearly explained.
If you take any initiative other than what is indicated in the images, your car will not work.

This electrical installation consists of an electronic control of the lights, which needs new cables, the isolation of old cables as indicated in the images (the most important part), and new coding.

Yes.

Your questions scare me slightly, the installation according to the images is very obvious. :|

An advice:
View the images on a large screen (pc, laptop), do not use the smartphone.

Good morning.
Trust what you see to be sure.✅
My main concern is because I don't trust people who ALWAYS use the "quote" button to reply right after to the previous post.🐵... 🤣

Please, use 'post reply' button in such circumstance, thanks. :lol:
