Does anyone know if iDrive 7.0 will be available in the 5 Series before the next generation 5 comes out in 2022?

I'd bet on it. Unless BMW releases iDrive 8 to correct the reverse tachometer on iD 7 and round out the cluster layout.

Coding files suggest it will be on LCI. Plus, LCI G12 has ID7:

ID7 is very buggy right now on the G05. Also hate that it doesn't work with HDD/SSD like ID6 does on my G30.

Ideally would be ID7.5 (with bugs worked out) with the prior circular gauges. I know it's wishful thinking but I don't like my wife's G05 gauges....

I have a 2018 540 and a 2019 X5. I prefer the cluster (full digital) on my 540. As others have said, iDrive 7 is a buggy mess. Looks nice, but an absolute mess. I***8217;ve had the car since November and still nothing has been fixed. I***8217;d be loving the X5 if it had iDrive 6, which just works.
