Don't feel sorry for me, I'm no "iDrive victim." I love iDrive and would not have a Bimmer without it. I've had two Progman updates thus far and not one of them broke anything. Japanese or German? No contest. I'd rather have one E90 than two, for example, G35s. Or any other Japanese cars for that matter. I've owned several Japanese vehicles, and they were all very well designed and built. But they're no BMW.
