will remain the install

basically, I cannot connect the Garmin BMW GPS (specifically said in the web page , cannot install if you have GPS Nav Business or Professional)

any one did the transformation on a 2005 model?
Do you have a MK IV DVD drive in the rear in the trunk? If so you would need to verify that the cable running from the DVD drive to the radio is the same that is used in a Professional Navigation install. If so I would think the retro fit should be simple. I have a spare Navigation Professional CD Control Unit for sale:
2005 X3 3.0, Mystic Blue Metallic, Sand Beige Leather Interior, Birch Grain Light Wood Trim, Steptronic Transmission, Premium Package, Heated Seats, Privacy Glass, Satellite Radio Prep, Xenon Adaptive Headlights, Heated Steering Wheel, Premium Sound, Power Folding Mirrors and NAVIGATION RETROFIT
