I also do like that they kept the traditional BMW orange gauge colors.
It is annoying they use the 5 series in the picture but doubt they get this until 2020 models next year. That does look very nice though but what can you do. There’s always gonna be better stuff coming out. I ordered a 530e and I won’t be surprised when they double the battery range on that in 2 years either. I wish car buying wasn’t such a guessing game to us in the know. Honestly though I think they should go further with the HUD than the dash. I stare so little at the dash nowadays. If a full map appeared on the windshield mapped to actual road view, then we’re talking.
