Yes it is, apart from you have to also change the tuner unit in the boot to 16:9 or you will just get the 4:3 size screen on you 16:9.

Hello Brett,

The part #for the tuner is 01104444444 but is obviously is discontinued, you can find all you need for the rtrofit on ebay, the 16:9 monitor is fairly standard apart from dont get one from an X5 as its a slightly different fascia fitment, also if you get one from a left hand drive car the screen is slightly angled the wrong way not by much though(to left), also you have to cut away part of the ventilation pipe behind it in the dash to allow the tape/disc player to fit, you have to do a diy on the pipe and tape it up etc, if you get one from a right hand drive all is fine as the pipe is pre moulded to take the player and the screen is angled slightly your way (right). The tuner units are fairly standard but look at the plugs in the ebay pics as some ads have ones for " 7 series" and the e65/66 which wont fit an e38. Also make sure it states 16;9 also some do both and will say 16:9/4:3.
