I drove one the other day. Just into the shop. I was helping a tech PDI it. I didn't get to do the road test though. . It sucks not being a fully licensed tech yet.

You should see the top gear episode. Clarkson just HATES the thing. He spends aout 10 minutes going over what sucks about the car. Then he pushes the "///M" button and his mind changes.

Its true about the signals though. On all 5's and 7's too I believe. You have to just tap it to make it stop. Not like fixed positions like on most cars.

The iDrive can be so tedious too. Just to reset tire pressure warning (I fix a lot of flats), or check the oil service, or whatever you need to do. The older techs have real problems with it.
