Most likely in future models. New features always trickle into other series

If it costs the same as in the 6 then I'll passĀ…
I totally agree...IMO HiFi Professional with 600W has pretty decent performance - it is light-years ahead of the standard sound system anyway!

My guess is that very few will choose the B&O system if the price tag resembles that for the 6-series (7 times more expensive than HiFi Pro!)

One would think this would be brought in on the flagship 7 Series and then filter down...

Sooooo glad I waited, will wait some more for LCI

Love these changes, once LCI is done, I'm going to bite, though I'm still not sure 535 or 550. Plenty of time to decide ;-)

Isn't the 5 series BMW's flagship model? At least they consider it to be their most important one—something I agree with because it's their bread and butter—and if that is the case then it is only logical that they will be bringing these innovations into the 5 and then trickle down/up to other models…

Regarding the B&O system,

Audi has the same system , and it is around £ 6000 , around $ 10,000 USD.

I thought the current 5 series have the Contactless opening of the tailgate already with the comfort access. The B&O system is about the same spec as the A6's, I dont know about you guys, but a $6000 audi system is too rich for me. The optional instrument gauge looks interesting, but a bit too ricey for me.

I wish bang was available for 2012...

Is there any price update on the B&O .. Might have to sell an arm but might be worth it.

How come we have three pages without a single reference to the M3 formatted dials with a 7,000 rpm redline and efficient dynamics battery charging indicator (M3's have in the past foregone instant milage readouts)? Is this being tested in the F80 M3 or just a theme BMW want to evoke in the F10's?

I think that "M3" means manual 3rd, as in manual mode 3rd gear....

These instrument configurations are just horrible. I felt like seeing screenshots of the next racing game. This is not a good direction for BMW!

I like the current combination of needles+lcd for the two central dials, but more than that is actually less, at least for a BMW.

Personally prefer the analog cluster to this but BMW has no choice but to keep up with other automobile makers. Even a Chrysler Dart has something similar. I'm just glad BMW is offering it as an option and not pushing it down our throats.

Mine is at the dealership and won't be picking it up for another month -- could've waited.

I do, however, think that precise instrumentation can be dangerous as people tend to fixate on holding an exact speed rather than paying attention to looking out at the big picture.

I like the new cluster, But its not offered on the M5... and the electric steering kills it for me on the regular 5ers.

If only I could get a e92 with the interior of the 550i or the 650i, with this new cluster and B/O.... That would be the ultimate driving machine!
