Which combox is best, Media or Telematics?

I'm looking at the combox retrofits and am getting confused as to the pro's and cons of the media and telematics units.

Do both units allow BMW live and what are the main advantages of each type?

Anyone got one and wishes they had the other?

I understand the telematics is trickier to fit. Can someone explain in everyday terms what extra hardware is needed.

Do both types of combox replace the unit that sits under the trunk carpet? I saw a pdf that states it goes in the dash

Anyone got a link to a combox retrofit in a 2008 e92 that has a cic retrofit already?

pm's welcome if this is sensitive
