Anything is possible. But whether the dealer is willing to do it and you're willing to pay the premium would be the real questions. It shouldn't require more than adding the requisite hardware and enabling the feature in the body modules.

You would think that you would only have to change out the CD player with the nav unit. My AH3 m sport will be here next week. It already has the 8.8 inch screen. Wouldn't think it would be more than 2k. But I don't know.

Sounds like it would be more trouble than it's worth...

A dealer would never do this for you.

Doing it yourself or with an speciality company is going to be $$$$ and possibly not even feasible, given the coding and/or wiring requirements.

Strange even though it has prep package it can't be done. You would think that with the 8.8 screen on the AH3 it would be standard. Oh well.

Found out that on the AH3 the hardware is standard on the 8.8 screen. It's about getting the code to unlock it. I think that's going to be the problem. It's a $2100 option that is already on the car.
