Mein Auto: 2008 X5 3.0si
New here - OEM nav/PDC/rear camera install?

Hi all!

New here, so I hope this is in the right place. Just purchased my 3rd BMW, a 2008 X5 3.0si. Came without nav/PDC/bluetooth etc. but couldn't pass up the deal with such a great interior and low mileage in my color combo. Looking into aftermarket installs of OEM parts. Looks like Bimmertech and Bimmerretrofit both have these options. Question is - who is the best person to have install these? I live in Central Florida. I know Technic PnP is down in Lauderdale. Is it worth it for me to purchase the parts and have them install, or just schedule purchase and install with them? Should I purchase and try to find someone locally (sketched by that)? Anyone done this? Not much experience with any modifications that require coding etc.

TIA!

If you have done any sort of stereo install work, you can do the installation yourself. You will still need to get it coded after install, so your car knows its there and it works with all the other modules in your car. My personal preference is Bimmertech for coding

Wink Thanks!

I have done electrical and repair work all around the house - but never on a car! This girl can rip out walls and do remodels but I am not sure I know where to start on my BMW! I'll have to look into it. It can't be that hard right...?
Thanks for the reply!
