Why are they complaining about the luxury featuers? I think the author is a boring grumpy man.

I still can't understand all the criticism of iDrive.

Well, they are right about lack of storage and they should look back to the E39 cupholders...the E60s are a big improvment but still kinda stink.

I, too, still don't understand the issue with I-Drive. I think it is just a "classic" thing to poo-poo on these cars since the 7's introduction. My I-Drive has been great and easy to use. Sure, you gotta put some time into it to learn where everything is but it has worked very well and is leaps and bounds better than the E39s annoying controls for NAV and such.

However, all that aside, the car simply rox!
