E63 / E64 6 Series (2003 - 2013)
The E63/E64 BMW 6 Series builds on BMW's sporty heritage with aggressive lines and an incredible motor to back the design up. Available in coupe and convertible trims with a standard 4.8 liter engine producing 360 horsepower and 360 lb-ft of torque, the 6-series is a popular choice that exceeds expectations.

Birth of a Sports Car - The Achilles Heel

I think part 3 was the most interesting. We actually got to see the cars we have being manufactured and shown. But the one thing never mentioned - and it seems as if everything else was in the three part series - was the iDrive. Why do you tnink that was?

I think it's because the iDrive, and specifically the Microsoftjunk OS, is the car's Achilles' heel.

Really enjoyed it too. Though I haven't seen #1 yet.

Could just be that the iDrive isn't really specific to the Sixer ...

I actually like the idrive. No major problems yet and it reduces clutter on dash. If it were an option, I would have ordered it.

Does anyone share this opinion?

Yes! I like the one knob to control radio, etc. The display is at the right height, and I don't have fumble through a myriad of buttons.

It is not for everyone though.

Don't get me wrong. I like iDrive in theory. It's a great idea and has an easy, user-friendly interface. Sadly, BMW's execution is flawed.
