Mein Auto: BMW 740iL 2000 (12/1999)
New Owner: 2000 740iL swapping in MK3

I bought a 2000 (12/99 build) 740iL.
It came with a MK2 nav computer, and I just snagged a MK3 for cheap.

Are there any tips/issues/etc with this swap? Anything to watch out for?

Or is it as simple as "out with the old, in with the new"?


P.S. and yes, I know a MK4 is much more desirable, but the MK3 was only $150.
Hopefully, within a year I can snag a MK4 and a 16x9 display.
