Exclamation

Personally I just can't see the advantages, you still have to take your eyes off the road to operate it.
WHY can't they improve VOICE COMMANDS now that would be useful.

I will be ordering the latest M5 for September.

This is a very significant upgrade to the iDrive system and it includes a wide range of new technologies. It should make input functionality and control a lot easier. As part of this upgrade the maps themselves are significantly enhanced.

Noway - couldn't disagree more! Its the 3.0 TFSI supercharged so enough daily power - actually the thing moves! Very impressive performance and build/gadgets (2 tone leather interior, alcantara, pop up screen, HUD, BOSE surround, even the gas meter is made up of LED lights -- you name it its there) -- I sometimes drive it and keep it running when she's out of town and I always think wow wish BMW still made cars like this. The 2-tone BMW interiors for instance died out with the Z3M and E39 M5 for instance. They've just become so BORING! It kills me to say this by the way coz we've been loyal since the early 70s....
