Just picked up a 2017 ILX base model and have a question- If I swap out the base models center stack /control panel with one from the premium or technology models with the secondary screen and etc will the features then work (Navigation, lane change/blind spot warning etc) or what other changes are needed? I.e.is the wiring harness already set up for the ungraded system, do the outside mirrors already have the warning lamp in them just not working in the base models, we like the car just some features we expected were standard aren't on this model so hoping can add/upgrade.

I wouldn't mess with the navigation system because most likely you will have to reprogram a lot of stuff and you might ruin something. I would just upgrade to a premium or tech. As for the BSI you would have to place the sensors where they belong and it is a mess. It is not worth all that time and money. It would be cheaper to upgrade to a premium or tech pack car.
