Loads. Too much to go into detail.

The one in your car at the moment is called the CCC iDrive, the new one is called the CIC iDrive. Google it.

There have been a few additions to CIC iDrive from 09-present, in functionality (addition of being able to read out SMS's on screen, open documents, use app's etc), but nothing major and nothing that would bother me - as all of this is still based on the CIC iDrive which is great. The 09 CIC iDrive still has all the features that people really care about, which is the layout, the ability to store music on the internal HDD, the speed of it, the HD screen, the 3D nav maps, the iPod album art etc

CCC iDrive is like Windows 95 - good, but a bit slow, featureless and clunky.
CIC iDrive is like Windows 7 - sleek, snappy and full of features.

If you've got the money to drop 3500 on AP brakes, updating your iDrive to CIC iDrive would be a probably the best bang for buck upgrade to your car.

Fair enough
