How much did it cost you?

I'm not sure whether it's down under. But it seems the only thing one can retrofit officially by the dealer is the performance line/kit.

I am hoping to retrofit a SATNAV, lights and front PDC. But haven't found one in melbourne.

Nothing at the moment. Probably I will retrofit the Navi...IF it comes out as a retrofit kit.

Fanis, I can't find any retrofits for SATNAV atm.

Though, chiptuning is possible.

The M Performance Parts can be retrofitted by the dealer. They did tell me about it.

The alpine stereo is it available for the F20?

Hmmm. If there is a demand, they would do it I reckon. Wonder whether BIMMER tech has something planned (though it would come at a price).

I hope they come out with a front PDC kit and stereo.

True, but:

1) They have done it for previous models (for example e85, e90 etc) and yes it costs an arm and a leg!

2) I already have the iDrive and the 6.5'' monitor, so for a Business Navi retrofit it is only a matter of installing the navigation unit and perform an update / programming of the car. This, should not cost that much.

Agreed. Am expecting it to cost dearly.

It's not the same iDrive - the SatNav version has more controls on it. But I think the screen is probably the right size.
