Yeah that thought crossed my mind... And it doesn't have that new trackpad type controller that spy shots have been showing us recently.
Im glad it's not new, my still-to-be-delievered car would already be out of date :

^^ Ha, same here! I'm already pissed that the 330d is available in the F30 from July! Mind you, I suppose we should be able to get software updates for the iDrive.

Note: Many PM me for links to the software needed to code. Please note that I do not have download links to this software. Your best bet is using the search function in the coding thread

I hope you can get updates on the standard idrive (fingers crossed)

The 330d should be absolutely f***ing rapid. Same engine as in the 530d? But with 300 less kilos? With xdrive and msport?
What more do you need!

It is different. Notice the touch pad on the iDrive knob and slightly different graphics.

F01 LCI should be receiving the next-generation nav system. Probably won't trickle down to F30 until the LCI.

hmm, are you talking about the touchpad on top of the idrive round controller? It looks similar to mine and doesn't really do anything. Does the new idrive touchpad do something?

Why can't this be just a software update for current F30's?
