Nissan recently announced that the all-new 2017 Maxima, available now at dealerships worldwide, is its first vehicle with CarPlay support. Apple's dashboard software is included with the Maxima Platinum trim package, which is available for a suggested price of $39,990 in the United States.

CarPlay is included as part of NissanConnect, a proprietary system with a wide range of features: automatic collision notification, remote start via smartphone, emergency calling, a stolen vehicle locator, satellite radio, a hands-free text messaging assistant, and more. The 2017 Maxima has an 8-inch touchscreen display.

Meanwhile, leaked price listings shared on discussion forum Bimmerpost reveal that BMW's first CarPlay vehicles will also be launching in North America and Europe this year, including 2017 M3, M4, X5 M, and X6 M models (via 9to5Mac). The documents show that CarPlay will be a $300 feature for U.S. models.

BMW and Nissan join a long list of automakers that offer CarPlay, including Acura, Audi, Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, Citroën, DS Automobiles, Ferrari, Ford, GMC, Honda, Hyundai, Kia, Mercedes-Benz, Mitsubishi, Lamborghini, Lincoln, Opel, Porsche, Peugeot, Seat, Škoda, Subaru, Suzuki, Volkswagen, Volvo, and others.

Meanwhile, two of the largest CarPlay holdouts remaining include Mazda and Toyota.

Carplay will also be available in all 3-series and 4-series models starting with model year 2017 that goes into production in August. You can see it in the PDF ordering guides here ('http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=916721') and here ('http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=916723').

Looks like 7-series is getting it also here ('http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/showthread.php?t=895063').
Also, the 2 series ('http://www.2addicts.com/forums/showthread.php?t=1273014').

I wonder if I'll be able to enable this with just an FSC code or will it require a new hardware.
I don't think it'll be just a FSC code, this looks to be in line with the iDrive 5.0 rollout
