2009 5 Series and 6 Series iDrive

I'm with BMW of North America, LLC. We want to clear up some confusion that appears to exist regarding iDrive. You may have noticed in the "build your own" section of BMWUSA.com or in some pictures posted on forums, that the new iDrive controller and buttons will be installed in the 2009 model year 5 Series and 6 Series. The software and functionality of the iDrive, however, will remain unchanged from the 2008 Model Year in these vehicles. In Model Year 2009, the 1 Series, 3 Series and 7 Series will be equipped with the new version of iDrive. We hope this answers any questions that you may have had regarding the iDrive in the 5 Series and 6 Series. As always, if you have any questions, please contact us at 800-831-1117 or via email at customer.relations@bmwusa.com.

Actually, in my personal opinion, having the shortcut buttons for CD, Nav, etc, is a great help.

Having just changed my e39 530d for an e60 M-Sport with prof nav (my first iDrive experience, as the e90 is a basic 320dSE) - and being someone who usually gets on with tech - I have found it a real pain when being in nav mode and then wanting to change the CD, etc...
