I guess there are two ways to fit a double-DIN in these cars: move the climate controls down, thus creating the double-DIN space above it; or changing the dash top as in the link.

The first method seems to work well and has been done a lot. I was about to go that way (until I found this thread), my only concern being whether the BMW's electronics would be compatible with aftermarket head units (satellite, Bluetooth, Nav, etc.).

I'll now investigate the up-top method shown in the link and decide which way to go. Sounds like Patryk (?) would know about the electronic compatibility issue.

Stay tuned.
Hmm...I can't agree with you there. You almost never see an aftermarket radio in these cars. At least on this side of the forum.
