    How's the glare? My dad's E60 has a dash overhang above the iDrive which keeps it totally glare free. Some newer cars I've driven with totally exposed screens are borderline unusable at certain times of day.

    BP, not very useful IMHO. Just part of the cool factor.

    704sw, I didn't notice glare issues so far.

    I have had no issues with glare whatsoever on the numerous F30 loaner cars I've had.

    It's not the car you drive, it's how you drive it.

    Good to know. The two F30 loaners I've had were both during very cloudy/rainy weather. It looked to me like they have some kind of anti-glare screen, but I couldn't really tell.

    Congrats on the sweet purchase! I love 335's. Someday I'd like to get my hands on a clean e90 or a newer one like yours.
