I had an aftermarket one fitted, it's seemlessly integrated with the idrive.

Ah I see.

Care to elaborate how that was done? I've seen the wiring loom kits on ebay, I assume that was used? was it a specific camera? I've seen the ones they put under the hatch door handle, is that where it is?

It was fitted by the garage in Nottingham, the camera is on the light for the number plate

What would be a ballpark figure for getting this fitted and linked up with iDrive?

About 300-350. I bought the car from ESP in Nottingham, they do a lot of retrofitting, might be why they sell so many models with high spec. I got mine done for free as part of the deal, but I think that's what he said it would of cost.

It's very well mounted, the screen you see is split with the normal front and rear PDC so I get both views. It was one of my essential options being a car for the wife!

Cheers. It looks good integrated with iDrive but it’s too steep for me tbh. Not a necessity anyway.

Thanks for the offer. Tbh it’s just something I was enquiring about but obviously it would be nice to have as long as it all looks like it was factory fitted but it’s not a priority for me right now.

Feel free to PM me your asking price though if you like. What make is the camera and do you know what other parts I would need?

The camera screen also goes green/amber/red in the areas where you get close. It's pretty good.
