Well if you will change your radio to an aftermarket one, you will have to replace all the speakers since they are 2ohm and the radio is 4ohm or something like that, or 8ohm. But I might be wrong, And a radio with a navigation will be more than $600 i think, unless its some crappy stuff. Sorry if I didnt help .

Do not put any aftermarket Nav in your car accept this one>> http://www.euro-spec.net/store/index...857df6f14c08ff

Its the only one that looks good and it actually worth the money, if you dont have the money dont buy anything.

do a search of the audio forum for "dynavin" you'll find 3 or 4 active threads on this unit. It is a china-made aftermarket headunit that looks completely OEM and is probably exactly what you are looking for. It is completely plug and play, has a ton of versatilty in the form of RCA in's as well as iPod and USB hook up for all your own music. It is retailing for $649 from one of the sponsors and looks really, really good. I have one on order, as it's like a 3 week + wait for shipping.
The only real draw-backs that I have seen are no satellite radio support and you'll need the AC relocation kit which I think I paid $40 bucks from Tischer BMW.
