iDrive Touch Retrofit for E92?

I'm curious to hear if there is a way to retrofit iDrive Touch into an E92 that has regular iDrive installed.

Not sure if this would even be a viable software / hardware upgrade, or if the E92's hardware is incompatible (and maybe even too slow) for something like that.

Does anyone know anything specific / definite about this?

Asked bimmertech about this...so far, no retrofit available for the e9x platform. They are, however, working on the f30 retrofit

I found a company in Korea.
They were selling a skin which goes on to CID (display) and it converts your CIC to touch system.
Can't find the link now.
If you search, I'm sure you'll be able to find something.

Near impossible via "OEM" kind of way due to E-series CIC software limitations and comm-protocols incompatibilities wih F-series.
However in non-OEM way it is possible, if add third party hardware with microprocessor control, etc.
