Part number for MKIV

Does anyone know the part number for the MKIV DVD unit (no screen needed)?

What other BMW vehicles (from '03 on) featured this navigation and would work in the X5?

I have spoke to a few junkyards that have the navigation drive but they are in other BMWs and I dont know if they will work in the X5.

Does anyone know if this MK4 part number (6590 6 920 182 03) upgrade will work in an 2002 X5? I would be swapping it out with an MK3.

According to the 10/05 ETK, here are the MkIV part numbers (from oldest to newest)

65 90 6 920 182
65 90 6 920 713
65 90 6 942 908
65 90 6 942 910
65 90 6 951 629
65 90 6 957 604
65 90 6 971 353
65 90 6 971 809
65 90 6 969 263
65 90 6 972 752
65 90 6 983 312
65 90 6 983 311

So it looks like that is one of the original MkIV's, but it should work.

Is there any negative to getting one of the original MKIV units? Do the newer units work better for any reason?

I suspect the 03 you are seeing references the year (the MkIV's were introduced in October 2002 on the model year 2003 X5's).

The only negative on getting an older MkIV is the firmware on the newer units is reported to support Sirius. So if you are thinking of getting Sirius at some point (which will also entail replacing your radio module with one from a 2004 or newer) then you may want to get a newer MkIV. Other than that they are the same.

Do you know if this model number (6590 6 942 908-01) will work with Sirius? Supposdly it was built in 2003 for a 2004 X5.

I am pretty sure at this point that all MkIV's will work with Sirius. The key is to be sure that the radio module (which must be a 2004 or newer) is set to USA mode. See http://www.xoutpost.com/showarticle-236.html for info on how to do this.
