Is this just a ID8 update or will some of these features be carried over to ID7?

Are the BMW wireless charging pads still trash or do they charge faster with less heat now?

Am I the only one who remembers what owners said about the original IDrive?

They've come a long way, baby.

They definitely have come a long way since the original iDrive. Interestingly enough, I never had an issue with the initial version (…although many issues plagued the 7-Series of the time).

Was that the 7 series with the 'Bangle butt'?
Yea..didn't help that it replaced one of the most beautiful BMWs made - that 2002 era 7 series.

Yep! The Bangle 7! It sold extremely well amid the posterior controversy.
