That could easily be the argument not to get idrive.

One of the reason to buy a 3er or 1er is you can opt out of getting idrive.

I have lost count how many idrive updates they have done to my E60, pain in the ass.

+1

I have had idrive in two Bimmers, one with nav and one without. The BMW satnav is by far the worst nav of any car I have owned.

Especially if you plan on keeping your car past the 4yr warranty. I strongly recommend steering clear of the idrive, it will become a liability. I have read one to many threads on other forums, of blank idrive screens, idrive crashes, replacing CCC, all after the warranty. That equals a lot of $$$$$$$$$$$.

Nice. Does it show traffic speeds, and gas stations alike?
