    There are retrofit kits available from BMW. So if you have something specific in mind, I can point you in the right direction.

    Yuppy

    Like Neal mentions, you will need to think about what upgrades you are considering so that you can be advised if the loom will accept the mod

    I'm a firm believer of "ANYTHING is possible, it just boils down to how much time and money you have to make it happen"

    Even if there wasn't a loom I'm sure a good auto electrician could make it happen for you

    you need to get a wiring diagram as its not as simple as just chopping a wire to fit in something new, you will need to run it through the correct fuses and lay the correct earths, something wich takes time and planning
