Are there any good aftermarket touchscreens?

I got to drive a 2013 x3 for the weekend while my car was at the dealer and I thought the I drive was awesome.

I have a non factory idrive on my 335i, and I was just curious if there was any good after touchscreen installs. I saw one on eBay, let me know if its junk or not.

And even If you do get it- it will be nothing like the iDrive.

There's a vendor on here that sells something similar. Last I checked, however, it had one glaring problem that kept me from buying it: Heated seats don't work with it. Supposedly, they're working on a new model that doesn't have this problem. It may even be out by now.

EDIT: Found it. http://www.e90post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=720765

sell your current car and get idrive -- thats if you want idrive or something like it.

You can get a mount and a pad/nexus7 and run everything bluetooth in your car.

No way. What software and how does it look?

Check out the Kenwood 6990HD. Someone did a comprehensive post on it in the audio forum. I don't have iDrive, so that will most likely be my next upgrade.
