Aftermarket Rear Camera

Posted in the DIY side but no responses so here it is in the general.

I didn't (couldn't?-too damn excited) wait for the perfect car and instead bought one on the boat without the rear view camera. Anybody know of an aftermarket solution that integrates with iDrive? I don't want another screen and hopefully something easy to install. I have nav, bmw assist, and bmw apps (that I can't even use, yippee).

Any advice would help.

I think this is an answer you probably wouldn't want to hear, but I would cancel that order and just order a car with camera, it will make your life a lot easier if you really want it.. retrofitting a camera is not going to be easy I imagine.

Would re-order like posted above. I've done a few aftermarket retrofits or w/e for rear view cameras and they aren't cheap, easy or fun.

Not really for the F30 but I just saw a complete set for the F10 on a Swiss site: http://www.kufatec.de/shop/product_i...W-F-serie.html

It might give you a bit of an idea what you're looking at. The cost for this thing on the F10 is 699 euro, which is almost 900 USD, I can imagine it will be about the same for the F30 (the cost for the rearview cam from factory is only 400 USD).
