This is a very timely reintroduction of this thread for me. I spent about an hour this morning with my new MY13 M5 learning the new iDrive and many of these functions are not available, at least in the US - right?

For example, obviously we don't have the new touch controller. I don't believe hotspot functionality is there? I can't get email and message functions with my iPhone iOS 6. What about weather? I have the icon checked, but don't see weather displayed anywhere. Am I missing something?

Are there other functions that were announced for July 12 production that didn't actually make it to the US?
