Mein Auto: 2008 BMW X5 4.8i

Both and have some really cool products and solutions. However I think I found the most cost-efficent way to add Bluetooth and a rear-view bluetooth mirror camera system to our X5's that didn't come with NAV or rear-view cam.

Basically I ordered a Pyle PLCM7200 7-Inch TFT Mirror Monitor with Rearview Night Vision Camera for $115 on Amazon and a Parrot Bluetooth system and called it a day!

Total spent $300 and installed it all myself. I know have a 10X4" LCD thin screen that clips onto to my factory rear-view mirror and provides me with not only a regular rear-view mirror capability with anti-glare and self-dimming, but it offers a full 7" LCD screen that displays a day or night view of everything behind my car (mounted above license plate) and displays incoming calls via bluetooth that paired to my Iphone 4S. The Parrot I installed under the dash, because I dont want to see it. I just want to have bluetooth hands-free ability for incoming and outgoing phone calls automatically.

S W E E T. So, If you have a 2008 BMW 4.8i E70 with no nav or backup camera (basic 6.5") screen, we have some really inexpensive options out there..../Craig
