You cannot do this without an aftermarket product of some sort - this is not natively supported pre LCI...

Multimedia Interface Kit + Rear View Camera Package

This looks awesome... What does the Multimedia Interface kit do?

Will the rear view camera be visible from the outside of the car? I don't need a guide on how to install it, just wondering if it will be poking out of my bumper or something. Thanks

unlikely, if there are issues with the NAV you could always remove the unit before you take it to the dealer

there are 3 AV inputs, you could connect an external DVD player to one and mount the player under your seat or in the glove compartment, or just connect the AV composite output cable of a video iPod (which is what I am doing)

I'm intersted in doing this also, I just got my 335i last weekend and was a bit confused when I realized the DVD slot in the car is only used for the Navteq DVD (I think?), I mean I figured it would at least play DVDs while parked... silly me.

So is the cable you're refering to something like this?:

http://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B00...=ATVPDKIKX0DER

and from the amazon description this should work with my iPhone or an iPod Touch? Right?

You actually need to use the apple composite cable (from the actual apple store), it is the only one that is guaranteed to work, not just with the MODMYNAV but in general

Yes it will work with a 2007, just specify it when you order. I currently have it on my 2007 e92 (multimedia + rear view camera) but I've actually never used the multimedia video function =(.
