Looks comfy, but WOW...that cockpit is "busy"

Reminds me of shopping for a new car last year and how much I ended up disliking the current automotive options coming from that side of the world. If I have to take my eyes AND a hand off the controls at the same time to complete a task.....no bueno.



How do you find anything on that console?

I'm ok with that as long as they implement the equal amount training hours required before they are allowed to pull out into traffic smile

I don't mind the dash, maybe BMW can finally get a clue an integrate the display into the dash instead of making it always a theft option.

plus wonder wheel or not is a damn zoo at times.

Looking at the picture above it looks like the front of the engine is forward enough that the front wheel of a normal fork would hit it.


Repost of Dennis' post above. It didn't like the degree symbol.
