Anyone capable of installing a CIC in a non-iDrive car near Durham?

I just bought a used 335d. At first, I didn't think I wanted nav/iDrive but the more I read about it, the more I realize I should have held out for a CIC system. BMW Retrofit has kits that are pretty affordable (at least more affordable than a new car!) but I don't have the expertise to install it. Anyone got any recs for a reputable shop or person to do an installation like this for me? TIA.

I can't get PMs since I'm new so you can just post recs in here, I guess.

I'm planning on purchasing the retrofit kit from Patrys. I should have all the parts and as far as I can tell, he'd be helping with the coding.

Ok cool. I may be able to help and I live an hour and a half away. Let me do a little bit more research on the install, and I'll you know. No promises at this point, but I will get back to you soon.

Just wanted to let you know I won't be available. I just don't have time right now since I am in the process of moving out of state. Hope you can find someone to hook you up though.
