Does this mean the people with nav already will be able to get something retrofitted(or a software update) to be able to play mp3's...or will you need a new car to play mp3's?

The ability to play MP3 with NAV should just be through a software upgrade

The european E60 5 Series cars with Business nav got this software upgrade in march this year, and everybody that went in for a softwae upgrade got the ability to play MP3's. ( E60 with Professional NAV are also hoping for a september software upgrade for MP3 )

Comfort Access has nothing to do with the seats, its a option that allows you to unlock/lock and start the car with just having the key in your pocket

Yeah, me too. When will dealers know about this? If I call them and schedule an appointment, will they know what I'm talking about or should I wait until it gets closer???

Will you be able to see song name/artist name for the mp3 on the iDrive hump? I guess, somebody who does not navi can answer this since they always had mp3 compatibility.
