BMW surprisingly decided to include the improved iDrive Navigation System in the BMW 5 and 6 series too. This comes as opposed to reports that have appeared in the last few months and that have led people to believe that the only models that will get the iDrive revision will be the BMW 1, 3 and 7 series.
Thanks to a BMW lover who has ordered a BMW 550i US specs from Germany through the Military program, we can all get a better look at the new iDrive system through the photos that he took. The quality of the photos isn’t that great. Nonetheless, this is clear proof and if you look closer, you can see the navigational buttons around the iDrive knob. Therefore, it’s clear that the BMW 550i is equipped with the new Car Infotainment Computer.
