I want to get the Nav but it is kind of pricey but was curious if you can install it in the 5 series after I buy the car. My dealer said it is only a factory installed option, but that does not make sense, with a little wiring I think this should be possible. Has anyone done this? I have the same question for the Heads-up Display

Peace B)

The heads up display would be very hard to do. I'm sure the DVD screen is probable. The issue wit the heads up is he amount of parts and its integration into the car, location, focus, and everything else. Maybe when you hit the lottery u can take it back to the dealership for the headsup
