To anyone on the fence about upgrading the 6.5" screen to a 8.8" I can confirm that it works. Just pull out the white connector on the camera module, put the #2 switch to on position (down), plug everything back in and restart your car. This is of course after the necessary coding for the screen. One issue I have however is I cannot get the lines to move from left to right on the camera. They can move up and down just fine though.

**Update**
Actually figured out the camera lines situation, I wasn't holding the idrive knob to the sides long enough after the lines started blinking. Thanks everyone for all the tips and advice, and to the OP for finding this camera.

Thanks to the OP for this thread. I finally have a reasonably priced backup camera in my car. Installed pretty easily on Saturday morning and worked flawlessly and needed zero adjustments (once I remembered to close my trunk lid that is ) What a difference.
