CAN Bus radio signal

I am trying to install a radio head unit from a 03' MINI. The head is an Alpine CD53 R50. It has very simple lines, and is HD capable, and would look great in the car. When I turn it on it shows "DISABLED" I have been told that it requires a CAN Bus signal. Is it possible to tap into the DME unit to acquire this signal? Would a newer Porsche HD unit work?Thank you,Roy
