BMW's pretty with it when it comes to safety, but on this one, I think they're way out of step. It's just tech for tech sake, and it detracts from the overall process of actually driving the car. Particularly one designed for very high speed cruising. Benz, of course, is no better and in some cases, even worse (i.e., Command).
Funny, with all the LCD screens and voice recognition, the radio still sounds like crap and the digital phones still drop calls like crazy.
Just my opinion.
