Retro Fit Sat Nav and TV
 
Hi

i have recently bought my first X5 (2002 3.0d) and it ididn't come with the above, so i am looking to install this lot.

HAs anyone on here done this already?

how easy is it?
Is the wiring Harness in place already?
how easy is it to fit the aerial?

has anyone got pictures of the fitting of this?

Many thanks in advance for any help

Yes, this has been done many times. Here is a detailed post with pictures. The cost will probably range from $1,500 - $2,500 depending on which parts you choose (4:3 screen vs. 16:9 screen and MKII, MKIII, or MKIV computer, etc.) and how patient you are with eBay (waiting for the best deal).

Yes, it looks like a lot, but it is worth it. The good part is that it is very well documented both here and on www.bimmerboard.com (on the Nav-AV forum).

i couldnt find anything with a fill parts list....

JPuma did a full retrofit, and here is his parts post. Most of the parts are the same for E38, E39, and X5 retrofit. Fortunately, it is the least expensive parts that are different, so the risk of a mistake is very small.

You may also want to consider an aftermarket Nav system head unit which can control a tv tuner, iPod, rear camera, DVDs, CDs, Sirius/XM radio, etc. I priced out the retrofit for my X and it was going to be about $4,000-6,000 with installation. I don't think its worth the $$, heck the option from the factory is only $1,200.00. I bought an Eclipse AVN 7000 for a fraction of that price and love it. Make sure that you research all of your options. Good Luck...Happy Motoring.
