Potential dumb question: Navi/I-Drive into non-navi car

I have a simple, yet most likely pretty dumb, question.

I have an 08 M3 with the base audio system, no Navi, and obviously no I-drive. If I wanted Navi (and I'm assuming the I-Drive is included with that), can I simply get a new upper dash and the components and it's "plug and play"?

Or am I out of my mind? I already have a nice Garmin unit so I don't care too much, but just curious.

Cost prohibitive imo. You will need an entire new dash I believe, as it's all one piece. Probably $2-3k installed and that's before you even touch the electronics side of things. Probably about a $5-6k job easily if it can even be done.

Aftermarket is the way to go imo, I'm trying to decide between the Cayman S and M3 and I plan on getting no nav in either so I can do my own. 09+ nav is very nice currently, but aftermarket is better if you plan to keep the car a long time because the oem nav's features will eventually become outdated.

Thank you, that's what I figured. I'm more interested in the stereo and I'm looking at my options right now.
