Yes, I admit I love high-tech and toys and when you can combine them into an automoble, I am in heaven.
I don't think it will be a flop, but I wouldn't want to be the first year or two owner of this car. I do think there will be some software issues that will need to be sorted out once you have thousands of users "online" with i-Drive.
BUT, is it just me or does anyone else agree that the E38 radio/cd/tape/etc system is the most ergonomic and brilliant (up till i-Drive possibly) design. I really like the clean design and never could understand the reviews that said there were too many buttons. I really like the multi-function buttons.
