iDrive Retrofit

Hey there, Recently bought an E84 X1 with Professional HU & Bluetooth. Have been looking around and from what I understand it would be possible to do some kind of iDrive (CCC/CIC/NBT) retrofit using adapters from E90 retrofits. Dash pieces are not my concern but functionally is it viable?

I looked into this as well when I purchased my X1 and found out just how terrible the bluetooth interface was for calling and streaming audio. From what I understand, you would have to swap out a LOT of dash parts and it would cost a crap load of $ but it can be done. Are you looking for a better interface for media and nav, because you would be better off installing a replica Chinese unit for about 500$
