Just checked the UK online configurator for the M3 Coupe and guess what…… it shows the new idrive controller.

Now BMW UK has already confirm the new idrive in the ’09 M3, so I just quickly checked the US configurator, it also shows new idrive controller!!!

Do we all believe now the new idrive is coming to ALL ’09 M3?

Lets hear the doubters now!!!! Is this not 100% proof?

Nice find on the US website! Pretty funny that we're still configuring 2008s with a 2009 feature. Oh well, makes me even happier to see that on the US website. Now if they could only track my car. Damn the Owner's Circle website sucks!

The new baby is complete and waiting to be released.
I was advised by email today from BMW that the baby is installed with the new Idrive.

Let the wait begin, can anybody tell me about how long it takes now that the car is complete and ready to be released ? a rough guess is fine as well

Thanks
Scott

My E93 should be in the same group as yours. And yours has the new iDrive..Excellent! My dealer told me it would not have the new system. Glad they're wrong.

Good morning Doctor, Just to make sure we are on the same page. Your new baby is being born, and delivered to the new daddy as an 09 correct?

If so, you are safe! and get the cigars ready. i will take a Ashton 898, PM me and I will tell you where to send it.

Correct. I got the message from the dealer on the 27th that it was in production. When I asked about the new iDrive he said no it's the old system. I told him if it's the old system I'll pass and wait for it. He was going to check to confirm but I haven't heard back. (They have ten '08 M3s on the lot so I can see why they may not want the "new and improved" version info out any sooner than they have to. Sounds like it may be time to start planning the arrival celebration

Lol. What a piece of work that guy was.

In all fairness though, I want to wait until we have visual proof of the new iDrive system in an E92. PencilGeek seems like a standup guy, and I have no worries that he'll renege on the bet like westy did. Regardless, as we've both said before, this bet was all about keeping this hot topic interesting, not the money. If we lived in the same area, I'd just as soon let him buy me a cold one or have him take a goofy picture with his car and post it on the forum (open to the latter idea).

Take two steps back.............breathe...........relax...............and read my post again. I wasn't necessarily questioning your integrity. I don't know you personally, which is why I said that I hope you do honor the bet (..in other words, attempting to give you the benefit of the doubt). Hell, I even added a smiley to assert that I wasn't being malevolent. Sheez!

Hi your Honor I do not think you have anything to worry about.
If you want a goofy picture, I will send you a few of me.

TLud, better get your paypal email address ready for me...looks like I'll be sending you $100 in a few weeks.
PG, I like your positive attitude. I'll shoot you my addy when we get final confirmation.

For the record, Sedan_Clan was poking at another guy on the forum who didn't follow through on a bet he lost with a different forum member. His comment was not intended to cast aspersions on your character.

Shoot away, buddy. I'm still stuck in the office and could use a good laugh.
