Plus it saves a couple grand since you won't have to spring for the HD screen if you don't want to.
That doesn't make any sense, IMO... the X5/6 should have exactly the same iDrive system -including the HD screen, the main point of the new iDrive- as the 5-, 6- and 7- Series not something lower in quality than even the 3-Series.
