Rear backup camera help - need advice

Hi all. I am considering purchasing this item from ebay:

Normally I wouldn't do this as I'm a fairly wary person on electronics from ebay but my mechanic bought a unit for his Range Rover from the same seller (presumably this is the same manufacturer for the Rover and BMW units) and installed it himself and it works perfectly.

You may or may not remember but I tried to install the Dension system in my car but it wouldn't work. The plug behind the radio wasn't correct for the Dension and video would not function.

This unit apparently is installed BEHIND everything in the trunk only, no need to remove any pieces or install this in the car behind the head unit/nav screen. It seems easy in theory. You just install this between the nav system and the car connections.

Any thoughts? It looks great on the Rover - had the guidelines, depth markers in numerals and changed colors if you went outside the lines. Not sure if it's infrared, but that might be a camera function, not the module.

GONE (but not forgotten): 2011 BMW F01 750i. Dark grey, black interior. Anthracite headliner, M Package, 760 Quad Tips/Diffuser, PedalBox, Sport Package and a bunch of other stuff... Current: 2009 e93
