oh c'mon now! I'd have to say that it would be nice to see something a little more revolutionary, however, I would say it is a great leap from the goofy, puffy-looking interior that is currently in the 7-series. Yes, the new is basically a more refined and streamlined version of the old, but tell me, wouldn't you rather the new version over the old?
Well, not really a "new shifter." It's BMW parts bin.
Looks like they added radio buttons -- and more HVAC buttons? -- to the console, thus eliminating some fiddling with the iDrive. It might only be needed for some esoteric things. But, yeah, the positioning is non-optimal.Well, not really a "new shifter." It's BMW parts bin.
Even for pre-production, that's a very sloppy interior. I would hope that the wood grains would match and flow into each other.
I'm not so sure about the semi-integrated center stack either. Piano black? :blink:
Looks like a possible ergonomic nightmare with iDrive positioned next to the shifter like that. But we'll see.
We'll see, I guess. I'm glad they went back to the proper shifter position though.
