Hello . Not sure where you originally posted this but I am glade it found is way here.
I must admit to being a gadget kind of guy myself so I am going to say yes. I have looked into puting this device into just about every car I have owned. It is a feature I think should be standard on cars that are considered to be machines of driving pleasure. My experience with these units is that the later version seem to be very good and surprisingly accurate.
They are a bit of a gimmick for sure. My advice would be to try and get hold of a tech manual or in touch with someone that has access to one and see exactly what you are up for.
At a guess the difference may be as simple as a BCM swap, but I am not 100% sure of the focus set up.
