    iDrive!!!

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    Is that a TV remote as a gear selector?

    And the double stacked A/C Vents on the left if kind of weird.

    I use to own a 745 and loved the iDrive. I guess I might have been the only person in the US who thought it was fine.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    People who cant get idrive are either retarded, lazy, or have been living in a cave for the past 10 years.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    True...... I prefer I-drive over most other systems out there

    There's also the possibility that there are those who can "get" iDrive just fine (are neither retarded OR lazy), and STILL think it's a bad idea!

    I've worked with many programmers who could not see the value in "simplifying" their user interface functions. They couldn't "get" why it would be of value to reduce the number of steps necessary to excecute often used commands.

    I have not used iDrive myself so I am basing my impressions solely on the many reviews I have seen. But from what I have read, there are many often used functions that require far too many steps to excecute; things like the climate control or radio functions that would be easier to use if they were separate buttons or knobs on the dash.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    Why I-drive just totally sucks.

    Go test drive a M6.

    See how many steps and screens it takes to get FULL MAX power. Its ridiculous.

    5 I-drive screens and 2 other different switches later you finally get FULL POWER. Ducky!

    What programmer thought of that? What manager signed off on that? and worse yet - what BMW executive said lets accept that? !!!

    They seem to have ZERO knowledge of and no talent for MMI -
    Man Machine Interface when it comes to controls.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    Yes but you can set it up to bring on the 'full power' and all that stuff by just pushing 1 button.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    I drive a 2006 m5 it is the same interface as the m6 it is quite easy to program the M button so that power and other settings are turned on or off at the push of a button. I would say that PCM is more complicated than I drive.

    Idrive (if you understand the logic) helps you to concentrate on the street. You have just one controller and the levels. It is so easy if you have learned how it works. Some people need one day some maybe one week. The people you couldn't use Idrive can't use an Ipod or a modern mobile phone.

    I like idrive in the new 3 series, easy to use after a couple of days. It also makes the dash look a lot cleaner.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    If Idrive helps you concentrate on the street, why are there no race cars with it?? I still find it too distracting, and too attention needy... even looking at a screen for 10-15 seconds is too long unless you pull over.

    Re: Spy x5 BMW

    I think the i-drive is the best user interface in the market. A person with a normal IQ will find it intuitive with in days. The m button makes everything even simplier. You can pre-set all the vehicle settings for race situation.

    I drive is less distracting when compare to Porsche's or older bmw's. It's more distracting when you need to look for a button out of so many buttons.
