Oem module vs emulator

Thanks Tom, Marius mentioned using some OEM parts which included an actual oem module rather than an emulator as included in the bimmertech package.

I would like to understand the difference in cost for going this route as it provides full grid line capability versus the bimmertech solution.

I don't mind a little extra elbow grease to mount the camera if the finished install is closer to "oem" (at least for a different bmw model as the e90 never had the camera). Are we talking an extra $50 to get the dynamic grid lines? Or $500?

Perhaps I can get bimmertech to provide the install along with the actual oem module including dynamic grid lines.

Thank you.
