that is obviously OEM right? Does the dash have an indash CD player?
Also, I have been looking to do the same thing. I definitely want to put a double din headunit in with Bluetooth, Nav, DVD, ipod aux, etc. I've been looking at the JVC KWNT1. It is a gorgeous double din deck that cost around $1000. According to some research I did its a pain in the ass to install any aftermarket double din in the e39's. They have to do a lot of fabricating in making a kit for it. I got quoted $250 just on labour to install that plus with the aftermarket deck I won't be able to use my steering wheel controls unless I buy a module which is close to another $200.
When all is said and done I'm looking at over $1500. That is just too rich for my blood.
