There are different types of iDrive systems but if your M6 is a stock '07 you have the CCC and you need the retangular video plug, not the round pug for later ('10+) CIC versions.

You will need a video adapter like this one:
Car Video Interface Multimedia Adapter for BMW 1 3 5 6 x5 x6 with iDrive Support | eBay

and a back up camera. There are several types to choose from. Some mount in place of one liscense plate light, come come mounted on a license plate bracket, etc.

You can figure between $300-$400 in parts. You can do the install yourself. It'll take a while but it's worth it. There are several DIY's for the job.
Once you have it installed you can also add other video sourced to the adapter too.
