I love being able to store all of my favorite CDs on the hard drive, and though it's mostly a novelty, I have always wanted a car that will play DVDs. For me the idrive really adds to the overall driving experience, and I would not enjoy my car nearly as much without it.
We can agree to disagree on whether the 09+ iDrive is good (I hated it) and its effect on cabin aesthetics (I'm indifferent, at best), but there is no way I would pass on an otherwise perfectly optioned car for iDrive. No way.
