IDrive Upgrade..

Ok i am thinking of updating my 08 idrive... just the console and IDRIVE knob... I search and search and noticed that there are several part numbers for the newer idrive itself. can someone chime in on the actual PART #?

I noticed that some say the new one has more clicks and more stable?

I have an 08 and want to upgrade to a new one. I just need the part number.

you should upgrade to the f10 5series knob. that one is badass and more firm when clicking...same size too..i was thinking about doing that, if i ever had to replace mine.

Has anyone tried to see if the F10 knob works in an 08 model? It should be the same as the F30 knob?

I actually like the aluminum knob better since I have the aluminum trim. That being said if I were to upgrade the entire system to the '09+ version I would most definitely upgrade the knob as well.

Thanks. yes i have seen that and and have done the mods for others but everyone had bought the newer IDRIVE m3 09-13... but as far as for the 5 series not sure if anyone had done it with the 5 series IDRIVE. they have stated that its better. but just cant confirm. most likely i will just get the regular version instead of getting the one for the 5 series IDRIVE.. also they are almost 200 dollars difference. id stick with the 2013 m3 idrive since its in my budget.. LOL

From using both, I'm not sure why the 5 series knob is so much more expensive. The M3 one is fine, in my opinion.
