Replace center storage box with LCD

my x1 came w/o idrive and it feels like something is missing w/o screen, so im thinking about adding one myself. Im trying to make it look OEM, so im looking for a trim piece that fits in the center dash. I found this company online, but they are in Taiwan. Does anyone know of a place I can get one or similar in the US?

I bought it directly from the manufacturer. it was around 100usd for the product and 20usd for shipment to TR.
One thing I must say, there is no perfect fit lcd (open frame or not) for this trim. I was lucky to have a cousin who could laser cut a frame to fit both my open frame lcd and the trim I bought.
Now I have a 7" touchscreen lcd installed on this trim and a pc in the trunk.
all navigation, music, movie, bluetooth hands free, kcan monitor(incl steering wheel button controls), wifi internet etc functions are fulfilled with this setup.
I was considering a cic i-drive retrofit earlier, but this car pc costed at most quarter of that.

searching for touchscreen CID

I have a 2015 x1 (xDrive28i) - the car didn't come with the CID 8.8 inch info system. I was wondering, is there a part number where I could find a used one? Can a stereo shop hook it up, or do you need to go the BMW dealer? I would really prefer to have the GPS on the dash versus having to hook up my phone all the time.

Thanks for your time.

Would very much appreciate updates on this! Have a 2013 and wish it was just a tad more updated.
