retrofitting a genuine BMW reverse camera to an 18 plate F46

Is this possible?
Car only has normal nav not PLUS :-( but has front and rear sensors.
Do all units have video in ?

Thanks in advance

Yes it can be done I went for the cheap option ie £25 rear camera and £30 emulator.after that it just needs coding.genuine bmw route would be £300+

From AliExpress go for a model with dynamic lines or you’ll have the permanent grid on the screen.for the emulator just search for bmw rear camera emulator.
