I just asked the same question in the F44 forums. Both the F40 and F44 use the same NFC module and wireless charging module.

Someone did it on a G30 and I'm sure if you ordered the correct parts, retrofit can be done as well as some coding work to turn on the wireless charging module function in idrive.

Every model would have different part numbers. Have you checked out realoem? By keying in your Vin number, u can check the required parts and their respective part numbers

BMW ETK will only list what the vehicle is equipped with. So the best thing to do is to go out of VIN like I just did to look up the parts. I am told you will need both #1 and #3 to retrofit wireless charging. The only coding would be to do is "not leave phone reminder" and if you want extended bluetooth. From what I've read on the G20 forum you can use the app Bimmercode.

Edit: My cousin just did this retrofit in his G01 X3 M Comp and it was plug and play. The wiring and plug was already under the console. The NFC pad works the same as before and he just coded the two features I mentioned.

Alternatively, you could buy the universal charging station.

As far as you know is there available somewhere some guide/manual to unmount that part on the Series 1 f40? I got my car one 5 days ago and I'm scared about trying to unmount the parts without any guide for hidden screws or whatsoever .

I want to check whether there are some wires.

Furthermore, where can I find the image you posted?

It is supposed to be this to be mounted:
