Good point, but the main problem is that I want something that's all but invisible when fitted, so that rules out things like the 70 Pure Highway that requires windscreen or dashboard mounts and leaves you with trailing wires. The other thing is the iDrive integration. The BMW kit, while not as good as the factory option, does have reasonable integration by pushing station data (station name, now playing etc.) to the iDrive unit, whereas that's a bit of an unknown with other solutions.
