iDrive screen in F30

To me it looks like the design of the iDrive screen on the F30 is going to make it a pain to clean around it. It creates a number of hard-to-get-at places where dust and other gunk can easily get trapped and would be very difficult to remove. But I guess I would have to see the car in person to know if that is indeed true or not.

Thanks for the reminder. I tend to lose that perpective every now and then.

You are correct. But, as seen in the new 6er, it is part of the new "design language" they're adopting.
