I've just stepped out of an 2008 M3 with DVD based SatNav so, I'm feeling you're pain Ė Itís certainly not one of BMW's more endearing features! The newer HD based SatNav and I Drive is certainly much easier to use and the 3D rendering in city centres is a cool touch!

I'm enjoying the car so far although Iíve not done a whole lot of miles in her but the one niggling thing is that Iím struggling to find a comfy seating position Ė The seats in the M3 were outstanding Ė Iím also a tad disappointed with the fuel consumption, Iíve averaged 34mpg (mostly commuting) which in nearly double what I was achieving with the M3 but I was kind of expecting a bit more. Could be the engines still a little on the tight side as itís only got 2300mls on her, hopefully itíll free off a bit more and the mpg will increase.
