wanting I-Drive... please help

I have a e92 with no factory navigation.. I was wondering if it would be possible to find parts to do add factory I Drive to my car. I dont like the way the indash units look on my car. I dont know if anyone has ever done a mod like this.. and if it would cost more than what it would be worth. If anyone has any advice or has done this before please let me know.

There's a number of topics on this subject. Yes it can be done. Try searching for "iDrive retrofit" and you'll get what you need.

^+1 It's a pain...for starters, you need to replace the whole dash. And after fitting all the parts, you need to have the car coded....

Never knew this existed. Might be my solution to not wanting to spend $400 for the factory iPod adaptor. Thanks.
