I have access to a person who is very familiar with advanced and retrofit coding, just need to get him the right instructions in case he hasn't done this specific retrofit before.

the panel conversion of chadm and shimano (auto-climate to auto-climate) has nothing with original TS question - manual climate to auto climate conversion
manual panell will not work correct because you do not have bunch of the parts
flap servos, solar sensor,additional ducts to rear etc to enable two zones
actually this is not so hardupgrade because e46 and e9x dashboard can be removed without big hassle
But wouldn't the missing hardware only be for new functionality? I don't care if I don't get new features, and am stuck with only fan speed, air flow, and temp etc, main reason to change is to get the form factor so I have more choice for a double din faceplate.

Don't really care if auto sensor doesn't work, rest doesn't work, dual zone doesn't work, etc...
