Adding BU Camera to G82

I have a 2015 M4 with no factory BU Camera and would like to add one. I know of all the third party MMI boxes, but is there an OEM way to add just the camera?

I know there is the camera itself, and also a camera module that goes between the camera and the HU, is there anything else to consider in doing this?

Thanks for any idea or suggestions.

You should really try the third party MMI boxes. It's so much easier to install than going the OEM route. The OEM route also involves coding to get it all running. I have the Bimmer-tech MMI box on my 2015. Works great and gives a nice full screen view.

I did the Bimmertech MMI box as you recommended. I found one here for sale, $300 plus the camera. Works great, very pleased with it. Thanks for the suggestion.
