Retrofiting my E70 2013

Ok. I just have my X5 2013, sadly here in Costa Rica all idrive systems are considered Ultra High Luxury item so it is impossible to get a full features idrive system ($$$), I do have PDC, rear view camera, limited voice control, small screen 6.6, Bluetooth, Im electronic Eng. so I really miss all the Connected drive, full office features and full Iphone integration, so I decided to retrofit my car... some out there says that it is better to have a new car, well this is not our option, Ill put it this way, here at the dealer a full X5M with all the idrive features worth more than US$200K this is senseless, for that amount I can buy a Ferrari in US and I still have some money left to go there and drive it once in a month.

Warranty, I really knows how electronics works, once they work for a week it is really rare that they will fail in the near future, if you are going to retrofit with third brands Ill be really concern, but with OEM parts the chance of fail is rare, anyway you can go back if you need to so I will keep my unused electronics with me, Ill go with Patryk from Bimmertech and I will post our process here....
