The connected services side of iDrive could definitely use some work.

The widgets can be a bit gimmicky and the traffic info is not nearly as good as googles.

Were they under the trunk in the E39? If so, it probably stemmed from that because there were minimal redesign costs.

Unlike the 3GT there arent cutouts for the panels under the trunk. Nonetheless, just lay them down first as they take up very little space.

JPYUSD has some resistance in the mid-low 121's. That being said, should it break through to 122, I see an easy slide to 125. Certainly possible for it to hit 130 by the end of the year.

0 points for me at the moment, but going from a 530 to a 435 has certainly made that a bit more difficult.

This is exactly right. Same thing happened to the MY2009 E60's - they had a very short production run because the MY2010 E60's started very early in 2009 instead of mid-year as BMW typically does.
