Agreed, the lease makes this issue go away to a large degree. BMW is state of the art with these systems so for the time being you can't do much better.

For a critical "zero failure" type of system that you rely on in your car I'll take the closed and single use technology. I don't think there is much that we are not getting and what we do get works extremely well it appears (my F30 is on order, my last iDrive was an early E90 that left something to be desired - certainly in comparison to the current tech package).
