Go agile, achieve ML3, and streamline methodologies … is all this even possible?

Hey, CMMI appraiser – We are a CMMI Maturity Level 2 engineering organization in the automotive industry, and my boss would like us to take steps toward becoming Level 3.  At the same time we are thinking about streamlining the performance improvement frameworks and methodologies we are using.  This comes on top of a directive from last year to adopt an agile approach to developing software.  Is all of this even possible?  What do you recommend? ~ Jason P.
