M3 2011 i-Drive set up

Hi People,

Just ordered M3 DCT with comp pack and wondered if there was a guide about the i-drive system, i just wanted to look at all the various settings I can play with when it arrives!

Nah mate, forget the guide. One of the best bits is playing with the iDrive as you go

Oh...I suppose the V8 and dual-clutch tranmission will be fun too

So is this car to replace the M3 DCT in your profile, or are we getting ahead of ourselves?

That's the "old" iDrive, surely a 2011 M3 will have the latest CIC based system?

Went for Space grey with black interior, a little nod of recognition to the CSL for being an amazing bit of workmanship. I did wonder about the red but decided it would be sensible to go for the black as i have a Baby also on the way in April and thought black wouldn't show up as many marks!!! I am loosing alot of sleep at the mo

Not quite as exotic as your order but my E91 is due May along with a little 'un too.

Be honest, which delivery are you focusing on at the moment

They are both really exciting but the Baby has been sort of known about now since the 1st month so im comfortable with it.... I am however really focused on the M3 but only because it is my latest big thing... really!!

Don't get too excited though, the link covers the DVD based Nav system. Yours will have the later hard drive system - even more to play with, such as putting your music on the internal hard drive.
