Rear View Camera Retrofit from Ebay

Hi all
While I was browsing ebay, I found this product for $ 126..

any idea if there is a prepared wiring to accommodate this camera on my I drive.

My Car is a 2013 20i ..

Thanks

I have this camera in my 335i, but got it through bimmerretrofit, the issue with the ebay setup is it is missing half of what you need - it is just the camera and wiring to the front of the car, but ends with a video output that you then need to integrate into your idrive screen, you can't just plug it in - you need a video interface into idrive and some intelligence to tell idrive to flip to the camera when the car goes into reverse. You can either buy it as a plug and play kit from a few places (best bet) or buy something like a tvandnav2go interface to hook up to idrive and plug the camera into, either way, you are looking at more like $400 to do it.
