Post 2009 3-series LCI + 2nd gen iDrive Training Manual

=> 2009 3-series, Advanced Diesel & new iDrive Training Manual (right-click-save-as)

Click (right-click-save-as) on the link above for the "2009 3-series, Advanced Diesel & new iDrive Training" Manual.

There's some great insight into all the changes of the new LCI 3-series, BMW diesel technology and the new 2nd generation iDrive.
Now you'll know exactly how your sales advisor will try to sell you on the 2009 3-series

Thanks to Michael for the info.

That's an interesting read... I did NOT know that the 2009 CWP will have a heated steering wheel - I'll be looking into a retrofit!

Stole it from another blog

Here are some key points:

* Interior 3 Series improved refinement
* Standard Active Headrests
* windows controls moved 20 mm towards the driver
* New iDrive
* Three new exterior colors: Space Gray, Blue Water, Tasman Green
* New Fine Line Aluminum replaces current trim
* Light Burl Walnut Wood replaces Light Poplar Wood
* Two new leather choices: Oyster Dakota and Saddle Brown
* Chestnut Brown Dakota leather replaces Terracotta Leather
* Finally, the 3 Series will be getting front and read PDC sensors
* Sport Package getting new wheel options and High Gloss Shadowline
* Cold Weather package will include heated steering wheel
* BMW 335d and X5d coming early 2009 (yes, we reported that earlier but BMW said November, still unclear)
* Automatic transmission only on the 335d and no xDrive
* Diesel Exhaust Fluid(DEF) service intervals: 11, 000 miles for the X5 and 13,000 miles for the 335d
* When DEF indicator shows zero miles, the car will not start anymore
* Better fuel economy for the 335d: 23MPG City and 33MPG Hwy
* Better fuel economy for the X5d: 19MPG City and 26MPG Hwy
* BMW X5 xdrive35d will give you a saving of 3.7 cents per-mile
* iDrive: 80GB Hard Drive with 12GB reserved for music
* New iDrive started off with 4 versions and based on the customer testing, the iDrive 2.0 was chosen

Heated Steering Wheel?
New i-drive?
High Gloss Shadowline trim for ZSP?

Poop. I would appreciate all these things in my current E92. At least the Logic 7 was standard though (now an option).

Thanks Jason. Twas a great read

High gloss shadow line... yummy. I can't wait for my e90 to arrive (heck, I can't wait for them to start building the damn thing).

edit: Sorry, meant e90. I keep thinking I'm still getting a coupe...

My E92 order (335i, ZSP) shows shadowline trim and hi-fi sound system, so it seems like at least a few of these changes are hitting the E92 as well.
