: I basically upgraded everything except the console head unit. That's why the steering wheel controls still function, along with everything else on the console. Of course, I used an MECP certified installer. (Mobile Electronics Certification Program). He did a great job.

Wiring Diagrams available at my site for DSP and for NONDSP will tell you how to patch off the existing stock BMW tuner wiring to run into an aftermarket amp. You then use Phoenix Gold or similiar (build your own) RCA cable kits to make some professional cables.
Stock Steering Wheel Controls Remain
MID display remains
NAV system functions properly with sound
