I just got back from the dealership, where I was able to sit in a new 7 and fiddle with the iDrive, and man the car isn't getting any better looking for me. But the inside, I like! It's well thought out and best of all gadgety!

As for iDrive, though a good idea, it's still not "there" yet. Maybe it needs to be all voice controlled to be most effect, but then again what do I know?

Next time I'd like to drive the new 7 and see how it feels. It maybe a good preview of how the E60 will be like.

I-drive WILL be standard, and yes the voice activation will too!
I-drive is just a form of information recall.Just point the highlighted cursor in the right direction and click.If you're not comfortable with that,you can use a voice command,it's all very simple.Definitely there for the betterment of man!
As for the integration of SMG,It's pretty simple,Either the knob will go behind the steering wheel alla 745i or it will go in front of the I-drive knob!
I guess we'll find out next June! See y'all then!
