combox retrofit in GTA

I have an e90m 2011 but my build date was before 9/10. No iDrive I can get phone Bluetooth going but not audio. I also have an android device and the USB on the glove box barely works. Doing some research looks like I might need the combox retrofit. Do any of you know anyone who does this in the GTA? Thanks.

Did you find a shop in the GTA for this? I'd be interested as well (or a rearview camera retrofit as well)

Combox retrofit is easy to DIY. I've done it twice. Just a matter of swapping some pins in a few connectors and recoding the car.

I'm not too comfortable removing trim or breaking any tabs on my baby (maybe in time) but "recoding" the car is definitely beyond me! (have you done it with the BimmerTech combox retrofit?) Want to do it for me?
