Dash LCD question

It looks like there are 2 different instrument clusters depending on Nav or no Nav. Correct?

On BMW website in the owners manual videos it looks like the LCD information is white but on another video they show orange. Check out the instrument cluster video and Dynamic cruise control video and see the difference.

I am wondering what color they actually are. I am getting ready to order a new X3 and am a bit tired of the orange.

The online manual shows Professional Nav and business Nav. What is the difference and what one do we get in US?

Thanks for any information.

Thanks for the quick reply. I need to make a decision on Nav or no Nav tomorrow.

Do you know the difference between the business and professional cluster as described in the owners manual. It looks like the professional one has more information and a larger LCD than the business but there is nothing in the documentation as to which one we get.

See my post from awhile ago: http://www.bimmerfest.com/forums/sho...64&postcount=3

The US and Canada have the sole choice of Professional Navigation. Business Nav is available in other markets, basically sat nav with smaller screen.
