Google for E46 nav retrofit. There are some great photo DIYs that explain everything. Also search here for Dynavin.

You will also need the navigation computer, BM53 radio receiver, brackets, wiring harness, antenna, software flash, and other things. The OEM navigation retrofit is NOT plug and play and requires a significant amount of work. There is a DIY somewhere on the forums.
