I think the coding side is fairly easy, but the hardware side is somewhat complicated, at least for me as I am not so much a hardware guy. There are a lot of variables depending on what you are starting with (BT, MULF, TCU, NAV, etc.) I leave that stuff to the more technically adept or experts like BimmerTech and Bimmer Retrofit. I know many people have done it though.

Here is the F30 Media Combox retrofit from BimmerTech for $725 USD:

Here is the F30 Telematics Combox retrofit from BimmerTech for $988:

It shows that if you have factory installed Bluetooth, there is an additional wiring set needed (or perhaps optional if you don't mind splicing wires) for $200 USD.

You can pick up a used Media Combox on eBay for under $350 USD if you want to go that route.
