Need GPS disc(s) for 2006 M3 - Appreciate any help.

I have a 2006 M3 with trunk DVD player for GPS. Dealer only has 2008 and up.

I found a website - BMWNAVDVD.COM - which says it has a 2 disc 2018 upgrade and to ask for V32 firmware upgrade when ordering. (believe my firmware is V28 - i.e. circa 2006-7.

Their 800 number is always busy and haven't gotten answer to email question about how to request the V32 when ordering. Offer sounds good, but can't get a real person to respond for questions.

Wonder if any BF users have used that source and if it is reliable. Reluctant to send credit card purchase to black hole I can't communicate with :-)

Thanks for any help.

A follow up if others are having same problem. After Posting I found sources for 2015 2-disc DVD update for E46.

One BMWNAVDVD.COM looks good, but they NEVER answer 800 number or answer customer service email requests -- so might be scam?

I found 2 sources on eBay for the data discs and a source in Long Beach, CA for the required V32 firmware update.
V32 Firmware update from: https://www.germanaudiotech.com/
2015 data discs (new) through eBay from "helpmehelpyou" [had another seller, for more - both reported reliable by eBay]

Total cost for both - w/free shipping - $50. Quite a bit better than I expected.

In a few days when they get here I will put post an update with results.

Update - Discs received

The 2 disc 2015 nav discs purchased on eBay arrived today. Better deal than I thought:

The update DVDs purchased from "helpmehelpyou95" came with a third disc to upgrade to V32.2 firmware. That wasn't mentioned on eBay ad.
[So now I have a second V32 upgrade from company in CA. Don't know if that is returnable or not....didn't use it so I'll see]

So the eBay deal was a real bargain (even included a very clear instruction sheet) -- Updated my M3 GPS no problem - seems to work fine. Both discs plus V32 upgrade all for $14.95. His eBay listing says only 3 left as of today 12/10/18.

Hope this helps someone.
