Was the Passport 8500ci difficult to install, have all those BMW fiber optic wires? What is a good price range, and method to find a qualified installer for this device?

What a beauty your car is!! Any issues so far?
The GPS module is installed on the flat surface behind the back seats, close to where the rear windshield meets the flat area. I paid $700 for the detector, and had it installed by my BMW dealer. It took a few hours of labor, but they did a really nice job.

I'm glad you like the car; I do too! The only issue I've had is with a rattle in the front passenger seat; they have mostly fixed the problem, but it still makes a little noise on occasion. Other than that the car has been perfect!
