Extended instrument display retrofit

Hey,

is it possible to retrofit to a f20 125i with business nab?
The regular cluster looks so boring!

You mean business Navigation or the Exteneded (Black) panel in the instrument cluster?

As a general note, you can retrofit almost anything...but in most cases the cost is so high that probably it is better to sell the car and get a new one with the extras you want.

No, it has navigation business.
But has the small rectangle instead of the extended (Black) panel in the instrument cluster.

For a new panel with extended (Black) panel in the instrument cluster, its $1000, but is it a direct swap plug and play?

It is a direct swap, but also needs coding from the dealer...don't know how much the dealer will charge though.

Oh ok, not bad! The only reason i was hesitating to get one that a friend is selling is because it didnt have that.

Thanks for that!
