My Porsche has the display below the vents. The display has both touch screen and the use of plain view source and function buttons. The best feature is having the digital speed readout straight in front of the driver's view through the steering wheel. In the same area as the digital speed readout (just below), you can display the step-by-step turning directions to your destination which is also verbally spoken by the digital voice assistant.

I sit lower in the Porsche than I do in the BMW, so I'm not sure if the display being lower than the BMW is more of a distraction or not as I have not noticed a problem? I have found the display to be much easier to use because the function buttons are clearly marked and I'm not having to figure out how to get to where I want by playing with the iDrive while driving. Also, if I do happen to not be able to quickly put my eyes on the button I want, then I can touch the screen to get to the function.
