Either get an OEM retrofit from deal or go with Mobridge or Dension. I am in the same boat and looks as if I will go with Dension. It will display everything in your nav and will give you control from the car just like stock.

Combox retrofit is what you need, then you can get bluetooth streaming and the USB port.

Is this a hard install? Better than the Dension or Mobridge?

OEM is always best IMO. Difficulty of installation is dependent on your skills. This installation is something we do on a daily basis so we are very familiar with what goes into this. Besides the parts install you will need the parts coded to work with your car. If you'd like to discuss more, you can feel free to PM me and we can quote you.

Dension/mObridge kits are a much easier installation, as they simply emulate a CD Changer (with the added features from the devices).
