I've had extensive test drives in the new F12 & 13 6 series and glare is a significant problem, especially in the convertible.
It looks like it should retract, but as it doesn't, it has the appearance of an afterthought.
I also wonder how many opportunistic thieves, thinking it's removable, will throw a brick through the side window in order to steal it.
+ 1000. I was wondering the same thing. Screen in F10 is in the place that should be. Again JMO
