M54 Swap into 325i - question

I am thinking of swaping in the 3L engine into my 2002 325iT. Unfortuantely, I bought the car without checking much into the engine and it looks like it wasn't really taken care off. The original engine might be on it's last leges based on some of the troubles that I have been having with it.

I have access to a 20k mile engine that came out of a recked 330ci for a decent price , but my biggest concern is the electronics . My car came equipped with navi and on board computer and by swapping in the M54 I don't want to loose any of the functions. I will be doing all of the work myself and I just wanted to confirm what would be the easiest way to go about it and what I have to watch out for. Any help will be greatly appreciated .
