E60/E61 interior change - when ?

Guys, i'll be moving from E39 to E60 soon and wonder about below pictures showing SZM/button panel.
As will be getting `08 builded car, can i expect lower or upper type of panel ?

And could anyone please shoot me how does this panel look with all options included (heating/venting/active arms holder, dunno if i called it correctly) ??




Tks

The year you are looking for is 08' and after, that is when BMW gave the M5 and the 5er a facelift and the M5 got one more at I believe 09 with larger mirrors and updated Navi.

the top pic is 08 and after
bottom pic is pre 08

Updated Nav was put into the M5 as a 2010 model. However, the 2009 had the same controls (buttons instead of the single idrive controller) as the 2010 but still had the old navigation.

Here are the facts of the updates on the M5 E60

Start Engine button at M5 10/2005

Facelift + changed interior came 04/2007

Navi changed 10/2008



When I learned the alphabet I started with the ///M
