I have a late 2000 5 series (E39) with BMW Business stereo system fitted and am considering buying a genuine 4:3 BMW monitor with the radio and tape player built in - the plan is to upgrade with TV and Sat Nav etc.

Does anyone know if the wiring loom in the 5 series is 'complete' and ready to simply plug in the different modules. In other words, is the wiring already present for TV/Sat Nav etc or would I need to get a new wiring loom as well?

Thanks for any help.

Simple answer - NO IT'S NOT. This is not a simple upgrade by any means and BMW will charge you a grand or 2 to complete it - that's cos it's a bitch to do and the looms have to be added from scratch. It is possible to do yourself if you know what you are doing, if you don't , don't bother.
