I'd gladly wait a few months for a 6FL set up; it seems that it should only involve some poking around below the center console; it doesn't sound like the radio head unit is different. Switching the control box in the trunk is also easy (if needed); I saw my radio box on my E46 when I swapped out the assist for bluetooth.
It may not be that simple. You need an extra MOST port and older cars do not have that in the center console.

Everyone I spoke with emphasized that the iPod Interface was the aftermarket accessory and that the 6FL was the factory option. I don't sense that this has changed.

Of course, there are many ways of doing a retrofit without an official retrofit kit but I wonder about how to tap into the MOST bus.

In addition to the physical port, it would require software and/or firmware support.
