Not really, the main problem is the activation of the camera. Night Vision contains two devices, NiVi (=ECU) and camera itself.
So, the camera and NiVi are locked to each other, that means usage of camera and NiVi from different cars is not possible.
After that, NiVi activates the camera, which is locked to cars VIN. So, that means, NiVi reads out the VIN from (I believe) CAS and sends him to the camera. If the VIN from CAS ist corresponding with the VIN in the camera, the system will be activated.
It is not possible to write VIN into NiVi and camera, that can do only BMW (with activation codes or so), but the retrofitting with used parts is not possible.
