Question Retro fitting sat nav in X3

Hi all.
Does anybody know how easy it is to retro fit a sat nav system into an X3. All the parts are genuine. In regards to the wiring is it all plug in or would I need to cut into any of the wiring.
Also,if anybody has any diagrams I'd be grateful to see them!

Get a copy of TIS and set aside a weekend preferably when it's warmed-up !

Basic tools are all that's needed plus a reasonable understanding of how to remove trim panels.

BMW retrofit instructions attached

Retrofit of Sat Nav


I retrofitted the system. It is quite easy. There is a BMW PDF which goes through the process step by step. Let me know if you need it? Also the retrofit kit is simly plug and play. As far as I recall there were two difficult bits which were the blue/yellow wire to the fuse box and the black wire to the rear of the instrument cluster.

Where are you based in the UK?

Thanks for the info and the tips. I'm in West Yorkshire.
Having a go at fitting it this weekend. I've roped in a mate to help as well. He's a Vauxhall engineer but he's mates with a BMW engineer so he's been picking his brains!
I'll let you know how we get on
Thanks again
