New X5 CPO Owner

A rather nasty storm blew down a tree on my well cared for 330CI I have been caring for since 2002. Tough decision, but I used insurance money to pick up 2009 X5, 3.0. Not my main car, so I didn't think I'd miss the bells on my 2011 535, but I do. I really wish I purchased a SAV with the technology package. The nav, backup camera and parking distance control are features I'd like to retro fit. Seems more common in Europe than the US. Anyone go through the trouble of trying this? I've been searching and posting a bit, trying to find a CCC unit to start my project. Thanks.

buy the CIC/new idrive. Why spend the effort to buy old tech?

Budget 5k, including install...unless you can tackle coding. Several competent and trusted vendors for nav upgrades.
Keep it as simple as possible...but no simpler.
