for that price, i'd be getting the Dynavin version.
Im actually planning on getting one in the near future.

From what i read, the steering wheel controls will still function as normal but im not sure about the rest? you wouldnt need it on the radio anyways..

this looks very much like a dynavin system...probably has come from the same factory in China

there are a few reviews of symilar systems online now - most quite negative, the main issue being integration and quality

you also lose your factory bluetooth so if you want to make a phone call you have to do it through the new touch screen interface instead of just pressing a button on a steering wheel (like you can do now if your car has bluetooth)

I would do a iDrive retrofit or nothing at all!

all the reviews on the dynavin seems pretty crap..

Try to get the dynavin,

i am using it, i think that is the best solution for you if you don't have idrive.
