Default Highline set up

Hello all,
I've purchased a 2004 Mk1 75 tourer that is currently being recommissioned with Jules in N.Wales.

It originally had a Highline set up but evidently the units in the rear have suffered water damage and don't work and the headunit was removed for a cheap DAB radio by the last owner.

The loom is there, I'd like to reinstate a Highline system.
From messages from Greeners I've been told I can buy recent BMW units that plug and play.

I have read a blog by John Parish online from 2011 about updating the Highline system.
Is John Parish still on here?

I'd really like any help to buy the latest upgrade I can...I've seen lots of BMW components on eBay but would appreciate all the help I can get on what units to look out for and faults.

Maybe wide-screen headunit and Mk4 SatNav drive.
How about BMW DAB or Digital TV tuners, Bluetooth and SatNav upgrades?

Appreciate your help

Thank you

Paul

I've recently completed a 'slow/gentle' conversion from OEM Hi-line to the BMW E39/46/54? circa 2005/6 comparable spec. (with a BM54 radio module still to be fitted) and current 2020/21 sat. nav. maps etc. - it's all plug and play, a distinct improvement/upgrade if you want to end up OEM 'like' - it still feels/looks pretty dated however (but it suits me).
I'm still to add some bluetooth bits for hands free but that will be it (I passed on digital TV but after all the above and you've if you've still got a spare £150-250 get a BMW hybrid TV module which is also just plug and play).
I think I did reasonably well with mainly e-bay purchases but it's pretty expensive for what is effectively obsolete kit.
