Though I've never actually used the system on the road, when I tried out the iDrive system, I found it to be extremely tedious and annoying. BMW's are supposed to be drivers cars, and Id think it'd be hard to "drive" the car, when you are too busy fiddling with a computer screen instead of watching the road. I don’t know about you, but I could see myself being too busy punching through the gears to fool around with a computer (assuming they’ll have a 6 speed manual option…) I must say, I don’t like the direction BMW are going in. Lately they seem to make all the wrong choices. But enough of my opinions, what do you guys think of the iDrive system? Is it really necessary... was it so hard to just press a button on the dash?
