7 Series - E65 / E66 (2002 - 2008)
Discussion of BMW's 4th generation E65/E66 7 Series flagship. The E65 generated much controversy, due to its radical styling and iDrive user difficulties. Nonetheless, the E65 broke records to become the best-selling 7-series iteration ever, especially after its 2005 facelift.

Does not look like they make one for pre facelift system. Ask "Paper" how to up grade entire system to the new system then install this unit.

it is possible , but it would not be cheap at all .
He would have to Retrofit & upgrade a lot of parts
& modify & even make a harness since his car does
not have an existing harness for the unit ,
& personally I don't think it would be worth the
damage to his wallet ...


The link you provided might be a better option ?
But honestly i can't really speak on it since I have
never installed or even had that item in my hands .

Several people in the UK have added the DAB tuner, but PAPER is correct... you need to upgrade several parts before hand.

I just got a DAB tuner. I'm just waiting for the right antenna amplifier to pop up on eBay and - if I'm really lucky - an upgraded shark fin antenna. After that it's two coax cables, power and loop in the most. Shouldn't cost more than 200 altogether to get DAB in.
