Our good friend Jonathan at the BMWCCA has had the privilege of being one of the first journalists in the US to spend some time with the new iDrive system.
He has collaborated with us in the past on good number of stories in regards to previous generations of the system and of course this new one.
He has burned the midnight oil and used his connections to have a glimpse at the system so I feel we should give him his just due and link directly to his review, photos and videos rather than endlessly quote here.
In a nut shell; he does a nice job of comparing the past and present while providing video of the system in action. It is all in English which is an added plus since most of the videos we have shown of the system have been in German! It is work the view and is excellent as always!
