I did mine myself and did the swirl flaps whilst I had the inlet manifold off, depends on how good you are on the spanners.
Also if you shear off any of the glowplugs 😬😬😬😬
Used a full tin of penetrating fluid over a couple of hours before I dare try to get mine out.
Glow plug relay is a mare to get at.
I'd wished I'd had someone else do it by the time I was halfway through the job😀
Glowplug relays are about £65 off EBay, ( same make as OEM ) glowplugs are around £15 each

Know what you about the relay...total job took me 4 1/2hrs (inc swirl flaps)....just so BM could save 50 pence worth of wire..... >:(

Common problem...two went on my e53...door handle carrier, you have to take the door card off etc, instructions can be found on the net, carriers can be found on ebay (get the right one they are handed), dont buy too cheap or it will happen again...door will open from the inside or you can use the all open function on the fob.....here you go, click on the two blue highlighted text for instructions prior to this:

There is no CD slot in the widescreen anyway, (CD's would still run from the 6 changer in the boot)...its a tape slot..so as you say retro fit a touch screen.
