  • You get a wireless remote about the size of a key fob. This is used to tune the DAB unit and change channels on it.

Switching to/from DAB as the source is still done via iDrive still & the info transmitted by the station (station name, now playing, etc.) comes up on the iDrive screen. Would be nice if the dealers started to offer the factory fit version, but I suspect they won't.
Thanks for the info - i do hope they find a way to use sharkfin and idrive fully make it seamless.
M2 Arrived!
