Also,

Does anyone know if this can be retrofitted to current cars or is it specific to the '07MY cars?

It's really easy to get caught out like this.

I got lucky with the E46 in that the car was a July build for Sept 1st delivery, but as the E46 was getting a little long in the tooth all they did was update the engine to Euro4 emmissions standards. So I didn't miss out on anything.

Just think how all those guys who ordered E60's just before they revealled the facelift must be feeling.

yeah i spose, i'll just be thankful that the updates are only really minor... the usb thing sounds cool but i'm not entirely sure what it'd do, the ipod is going to be connected under the armrest and i'm perfectly happy with that (the interface seems a bit bodge-jobby to me anyway, selecting different cds in the cd changer interface to choose between album/artist/playlist etc - IF it was a bespoke ipod interface onscreen i'd be one jealous puppy ) - and other than that afaik its just some custom buttons to shortcut things in the iDrive setup and a chrome surround on the volume dial ( in fact, this silly little thing is the thing i'd want the most )

i can live with it, even if i waited there would be summat ELSE just around the corner and i'd never bloody get the car

You should use the dealer I used to order my 335i back in Dec (28th). Due to some cock up, my car will not start to be built until week 10 (the first week of the new build)!!!

So that i have to wait longer but that i get one of the first with the new additions.

P.S. It's killing me waiting, must have read the manual so much now, I know it backwards!!!

The 2 liter diesel engines are being updated in March for the 1 series and the 5 series.

Current 163 hp engine gets 177 bhp and 129 Co emissions...!!

Dont know when the 3 series will get the upgrade.
