Hi Bill, I haven't logged on in a while and I have just seen your post.

For the parts questions there are a number of specialists (Munich Legends or that you can approach of BMW directly. Unfortunately not all parts are still available from BMW so you may be forced down the second hand / salvage route... just to be aware. 

The DAB upgrade is a good question and should be straight forward for the above mentioned specialists to advise on.

As for tyres, getting spares can often be troublesome as the years have passed. I have been buying Falken tyres from Black Circles at the correct sizes per the Owners Manual on my CSI.

There are some useful reference websites out there for reference:

Happy Hunting!
