BMW's new iDrive contains boost controller?

http://www.autoblog.com/2008/06/01/b...ons-to-idrive/

Quote:
Simple choices such as color schemes and screensavers for the iDrive's graphical user interface pale in comparison to the ability to adjust transmission shift points and engine boost levels in an effort to either increase fuel economy or improve overall performance. Multiple users will be able to make their own adjustments and save their settings and the car will know the driver based on which key fob is in close proximity.
More info here too.

Wow...that's pretty cool.

I guess this is a continuation of all the settings available in the //M cars.

The rub (there is always one!)

BMW will introduce the world to a further customizable automobile. As we recently hinted at, BMW has all intentions of making their future cars feature 2-way communication and a completely customizable experience.

Does nothing for my future car on order!
