Depends on what you think is worth it... I spent $1400 retrofitting a complete system. OEM Nav is fantastic, there is a ton you can do with it, and lots of other OEM options to add to it. I couldn't build a system with that many features, that would utilize my factory bluetooth, support the factory TV module and reverse camera etc for anywhere near that price.



Check out: http://www.bigpatsfans.com/bmw.htm

and look at
"Ultimate Retrofit" Navigation Install Instructions Part 1 & 2"

for detailed pictures of exactly what needs to be done.

I just did the retrofit about a month ago: http://forum.e46fanatics.com/showthread.php?t=671857
