F32 interior question

Do we know if F32 will share the same interior features with F30. My main
concern is the i-drive screen...
Does anyone know if it will be more seamlessly integrated into the dash?
I plan on trading my 335 e92 in March of '14 and if the new coupe has the same screen, it will be a no go for me...

Garage List
There was a spy pic somewhere here of the convertible and it had the same looking dash and iDrive as the F30.

It figures in a business sense, but I was hoping that maybe, just maybe, since it will be a "new" series (4), it might have slightly different interior styling.

We all had the same reaction when we saw the F30's screen for the first time.

And then we took a test drive, saw how perfectly positioned it was, saw how it's slim design increases visibility, saw how essential it is to the overall driving experience, and we were all glad BMW did it that way.

Eventually every car will execute the screen in that manner as it's the highest point in the driver's line of sight and putting the thing below the air vents won't work.

It's funny how subjective it is, though. I hated the E92's humpty-hump double-hump camel-hump shroud, thought it broke the flow of the dash, thought the screen was small and buried in a huge plastic helmet.

doubt it will change, the 6 series has almost the same screen as well.

I would think it will be a bit more integrated into the dash like the 6er's is. If you look at a 6 you'll notice that there is more dash behind the screen versus the 3. Just my two cents.

I feel the same way. I think it integrates perfectly. I guess that's why BMW designers get paid the big bucks.

True. I can't stand it. My op was not a debate opener, but a simple question.
