sji2671 is an unknown quantity at this point
(Thread Starter)
I have a BMW 728 1997, I am looking at getting sat nav and was looking at just an XDA2 with TOM TOM but I wondered whether it would be possible to buy the screen/kit from a salvaged car and install it in my 7series which does not come with sat/nav/tv.

ie something like http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vie...5735859848&rd=1

i dont know how hard or possible it is to upgrade a beemer to sat/nav/tv if it was not originally installed so I would like any thoughts/experience as its a tidy way to get what I want and keep my car!

Thanks
Scott

Is is possible....yes and no. The unit itself would fit fine, but the wiring would be all but impossible. Also, you would need to buy a lot of mountings for all the units. I would highly reccomend against it.
