Carlos, do a here and you'll find the secret menu stuff.

Not sure the E60 instructions will work as they appear to have the ability to move diagonally. See step 3.

You could try sitting in the car and slapping the controller about to see what happens though

Also, for those that do not know, the iDrive system has 2 separate hidden menus.

The first one is from the main menu (the 'i' menu with the 4 quadrants)
- keep the iDrive button pressed for 10sec and release
- rotate the iDrive controller 3 clicks clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 3 clicks counter-clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click counter-clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click clockwise
- press iDrive button

This one is mainly internal variables used by the developers for debugging it seems.

For the second one, you need to enter the 'Navigation' quadrant, and press the iDrive controller down until your at the bottom section, now highlight (but do not press!) the "Map, indicating dir. of travel" option, and follow the following steps..

- move the iDrive button to the top-right corner and keep it there for 10sec and release
- rotate the iDrive controller 3 clicks clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 3 clicks counter-clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click counter-clockwise
- rotate the iDrive controller 1 click clockwise
- press iDrive button

The rotations to get into the 2 menus are identical.
This second menu contains things like true speed, as measured by the GPS.

Lastly, the BC (BoardComputer), which is standard on all E9[012] cars, those with and without iDrive, also has hidden functions, but I have not really bothered with it yet.
