Good article

Two things I noticed that I found interesting:

1) The oil cap on the engine is the same one that's on my car. Most of the new 2011s here in the States seem to have the new style oil cap.

2) The iDrive on the test car has 8 programmable buttons whereas the North America cars apparently only have 6 (plus AM/FM and Mode buttons in place of the additional 2 programmable buttons). I'd much rather have 8 programmable buttons. I mean do we really need to be able to have FOUR ways to change modes (steering wheel, iDrive controller, FM/AM/Mode dash buttons, programmable dash buttons)??? Sheesh.
