This car is excels in all areas except for the iDrive system. The system does not need to be integrated with the shift. It should only aid the transmission when a specific performance is selected, i.e- the sport shift selection. When scolling through endless options it may take a while to find the gear you wish to select. I only hope they do not integrate iDrive into the BMW 3- Series. The exterior design is truly timeless. The seats are very supple and the integrated heating and cooling system is a must for dark interior and cold climate areas. Customizable options to meet needs and wants of the consumer. This car is truly a solid made German vehicle. BMW has set the standard high.
The telescopic wheel, precise climate control, and the sound system are among my favorite features. Above all, the 6 liter V12.
The iDrive system; a separate shift is needed, except for the selected performances. Another solution would be to separate the transmission with a different screen and separate scolling device.
