I already went through two pages worth of these comments before doing the 1st-gen i-drive retrofit on my car. It can be done, and in my case, for cheaper than the option cost on the new car! (Not including the 100 hours of R&D though! - that was just plain fun!)
The CIC retrofit makes it worth it so much more...
