Yeah I know what you mean, I'm glad my X5 had the complete BMW system as standard! but I did have the same problem with my e39 a few years back. It had no Screen and I wanted to do the BMW retrofit but it was quite a bit of work and the screen will just not work without the rest. So what I did to get a similar factory finish look for the my e39 was I purchased a Double Din system similar to this


Then I purchased a double din facia plate from this guy:

And the look you get is something like this:



and the whole system look fantastic, less hassle and a cheaper mod than retrofitting the original BMW unit.
