This is official press release from BMW.
i meant that it doesnt look right on 5
Simply amazing! Love this kind of panel!
Screen savers for the dash when car is parked. *Sponsored by Google*
^ sounds cool, man! Good idea.
The 550i GT does 0-100km/h in 5 sec......I am sure that is exactly what their target customers want.
Makes a whole lot more sense to me now. And the traditional layout + looks is still part of the equation!
I am too oldfashioned for this sh!t...
^ Me, the only person you have to convince is yourself LOL
Though I am 'only' 36 (Martin has reach old age @ 40) I must ad that I prefer something more:
Was obvious to me from the beginning. Hence me not understanding all the negativity. It has everything the 'purists', plus a whole lot more cool stuff!
I am sure that is exactly what a 550i GT buyer would want. Otherwise he'd go for a 520d GT or maybe 530d GT.
BTW, speaking of the N63TÜ, it's weird (and a shame) the 550i sedan/Touring didn't get it
I also understood it from the beginning. I have no problem with the idea behind it. I just think the "artificial" dials look cheap. The fuel gauge needle for example. The needle is too short and it looks like it's from a child's toy or a computer game. What's wrong with a real needle for God's sake?
Real needle > Fake needle.
A lot when you decide to put a great 10"+ screen instead of analog dials. The screen can display everything one can possibly want, and a needle would be in the way.
If you want to sow your pants, sure.
Analogue vs Digital. Do you wan't a real anlogue watch or an iPod Nano on yur wrist with an analogue watch skin.
Good point. A proper analogue is always gonna be the classiest choice. Some devices need to be digital, but some are just there for frivolous/marketing purposes. This is one of those times I think.
Yeah, good point comparing a car with a watch. Very good indeed
Is an instrument display a "car"? There are many elements which make up a car. An instrument display can in fact be somewhat linked to a watch in terms of how ones eyes would like to view it (analog VS digital, for example).
I always like looking at the hooded analog gauges in my E-Class over the pointless graphic display in the S-Class. Not to mention, as if the S-Class needs something else to massacre resale value, now you can look forward to the lights going out and a several thousand dollar fix.
