Swapping NBT system to the pro?

Is it overly difficult to upgrade the NBT to the NBT pro myself (have the base one with the small screen)? I see there are a few NBT pro systems from the same generation/model as I have (i3) on ebay - Any insight on what would need to be taken apart to do the upgrade myself? Beyond the probably laborious task of physically switching out the components - Is it difficult to get a system re-coded to work with a different car?

Examples of units available:

Maybe just upgrade the screen?

Reading this thread - it looks like if I just want to upgrade the screen to 8.8 or maybe even 10.25 - all I would need to do is swap the screen and update the coding?

http://f30.bimmerpost.com/forums/sho....php?t=1213730

Without out updating the head unit/receiver - would I be able to do the split screen and other aesthetics options of the NBT Pro (minus the 4g over the air maps updates, etc?)
