As a luxury car maker, BMW places heavy emphasis on the comfort technologies in its cars. Since the fifties, BMW engineers have worked to make driving each new BMW model more comfortable and an easier experience than before. Watch the evolution of comfort technologies in BMW automobiles in the video below.

Pretty kool vid. Too bad "comfort" is a luxury most people can't afford.

I bet every car in this segment from 1955 to 2011 is only available to middle/high class society. Too bad really cuz they work wonders....

It is nice to stop and reflect back as to where we came from.

I enjoyed the reflection - Thanks for posting!

3:18 When it showed the F01 7er he said "all new is the multi-function steering wheel, it allows operating different features without taking the hand from the wheel"

UHHHHH??!! They introduced that waayyy long ago, not in 2008!! WTH?

Shame they failed to mention the awful ride quality of the e60/e90/e87 with the combo of run flats/hard springs/soft bushes

FAIL!

"…BMW iDrive, with this intuitive and interactive operating system…"

The latest generation of iDrive is much improved over previous ones; nonetheless this still gave me a good laugh.

I think that depends on a person's priorities. If someone doesn't mind that their car isn't new, you can get a great Certified Pre-Owned BMW for less than many cars are new. You can get a nice 2-3 year old lease return with the warranty and service agreement for the low to mid $20's, and that is Altima or Camry money. I think BMW (and other cars of it's class) have an unfair stigma about price and attainability. I recently moved from CA to TX and everyone here seems to be in a full size truck or SUV. You can't walk outside without seeing an F-150 or Tahoe, but everyone comments that I drive a BMW. If you've priced trucks and SUV's lately, they aren't exactly cheap. No one bats an eye at dropping $40k on an SUV, but suddenly your "exclusive" if you by a BMW? Another example of perception driving reality...

My '76 2002 also only had 1 mirror, and I wondered why...
They started putting 2 side mirrors on in '78 I believe. For inspection, you only need 2 mirrors (in PA anyway) such as a rearview and 1 side.
