Can you retrofit an newer professional stereo into a 2010 car? My professional radio is far from it and has nothing going for it
You can, but two quick questions first;
Do you have bluetooth?
Do you have a USB socket (with an AUX port next to it) in the centre console?

If you answer no to both of those then yes it's possible and relatively straight forward.
It should cost you in the region of £350, and you'll need to do a bit of coding with a laptop.
Alas I'm on my tablet at the moment but I'll post a link for you with all the info you need if you're interested.
I do not have Bluetooth or usb socket. Interested to hear more

OK then here you go the full parts list and install instructions including the coding required...

Some (possible most) of the links for eBay may no longer work, but that is why I've included photos for refference.
Hope that helps.

Amazing work. Thanks is very much. Will just have to see how brave I'm going to be but usb, Bluetooth and dab seem like a worthwhile investment

It's all there except any info on DAB.......
For the DAB side it all is the same just the addition of a DAB screen antenna. Go for a quality one, you could try the OEM route here, but personally it's not worth it, just stick one to the inside of the windscreen.
Now finding a DAB head unit my be a little more difficult to find though, but there is one on eBay at the moment.

It may be, the O/P has stated that he does have DAB so it may well be :thumbsup:

iDrive DAB was an option from 2010, so yes it can be. Could be a right pain to fit an OEM antenna, so I'd opt for an aftermarket one then it would just need coding to the car, everything else should be plug-n-play

Cheers, I'll have to find the correct model number unit and then keep an eye out for one

Part numbers are...

65129213400
and
65129239220

That's both Satnav and DAB, but if there are photos of the back make sure that the mustard (DAB), green (DAB), black (Radio), off white (USB) and blue (GPS) connectors are all there
