Dual Climate is a must for our next vehicle. The day we test drove the 2010 X3, it was 100 degrees. We had our son with us. It was next to miserable setting in the backseat. Again, I can overlook this in a $20,000 vehicle, but 50? no way. I will be shopping else where. Even if I do have a 335i parked in the garage next to it.

Not a personal attack but I just think we are all so spoiled. I've never been in a vehicle with "dual climate control" and when I first heard it on the TV, I thought it was just a stupid gimmick. I have the 2005 X3 and it is pretty good with making the whole car either cool or warm within minutes.

As far as minor differences in preference, all one has to do is ask the person to turn the middle vents towards themselves (they swivel) and then you can close the one facing you. Anything more than this is super spoiled in my book and I surely hope they make it optional rather than drag the price up for those who want two different temperature zones in such a small space (as if one "zone" wont interact with the other).

If they never made it, you would have never thought of it or thought to complain about it. lol How about Dual Climate in the bedroom for sides of the room? lol It's a silly concept if you ask me.
