Mein Auto: 2011 X3 35i M Sport
F25 Retrofit Rear-view Camera Installation in Toronto

Hey guys, I just bought a CPO 2011 BMW X3 35i M Sport, so far I am loving it but I really wish I had a rear view camera function. I have tech package but apparently here in Canada, camera function is only included in the executive package, which I do not have...

I researched the forums and found bunch of DIY installation but given that I am not mech savvy, I am looking for some professional to install the Retrofit Rear camera for me.

Does anyone here know any shops in Toronto, Ontario that does this? Also how much does it cost for the labour?

Cheers

Mein Auto: BMW X3 28i
Hi
I did speak to a Bittertech recommended dealer near my home in US and he said the installation will take 5-7 hours and cost about $500 USD

But here in the forum people who got it installed are suggesting it should not take more than 3 hours at most. xo be aware of that and also check your local automotive stores for audio / video installations.

hope this helps. I am also a newbie and doing my research on this. I got the 2011 X3 XDrive 28i it is loaded minus the rear view camera.

That puts things into perspective. Thanks! I guess I will message bimmertech to see if they know any dealers who can install this in my area
