Ordered mine early Jan and my dealer specifically told me to hold out for this. I must admit I am still not really sure what the difference is!

I have the new Sat Nav and it's good, if yours come with the crap I have in the loan M5 reg 21/10/2012, then you will not be pleased, the dash should be a "Digital" gauge readout.

The new sat-nav is light years quicker than the old system, and has many innovations.
The speedo and rev counter area should be a "Digital Display" not the current one.

Is this what your talking about for the iDrive?
http://www.f30post.com/forums/showthread.php?t=691510

Still confused on speedo and rev counter.. your telling me they removed the M Dials with digital readouts? Seems like a step back?

Also do you know the build date for the new equipment? Trying to figure out if my March 2013 build will have the new iDrive upgrade.

Wow, how did I miss that announcement. Looks like a huge upgrade in specs. I did not think my 03/2013 car was getting this equipment.. nice surprise though.

What about the other part of the announcement: In Car LTE and the iDrive Touch Controller.. not for a while?

Thanks for all the info. Any chance have you seen a photo of the digital readouts you were talking about? I found the iDrive press release and photos, but cant find photos of any improvements of the actual dash above steering wheel where rpm/speed is shown.

Only that video above sorry, may look tomorrow and find out more from the dealership.

I had understood that the m5 was not getting the new dash. You might want to double check that one.

I hope it is only the Nav system that gets updated, I drove a 7 with those black panel instrument clusters, and was not impressed. I want real analog guages in a sporty car NOT the starship Entrprise console.

....next thing they'll be piping engine noise into the cabin

I have been preying that was the case. There are videos that specifically say M5 LCD Instrument Gauges.

However, I just logged into my Owners Circle where I check my cars productions status.. and I clicked on "standard features".

Instrument cluster with additional integrated LED display

Thankfully dodged that one. Love the new iDrive upgrade, but getting rid of the iconic red needles is craziness.

The 2013 F10 M5's will have the new iDrive and retain the normal instrument gauges with red M specific needles.

The red needles and the backlit white digits really does look great.

No M5 for me.

Well after all the bartering I came away with a good discount but shit RV on my 330 D M Sport F31
They offered 36K for a 6 month old 50K car, so I politely bowed out.
The latest M5 is not getting A Digital dash until at least november build, it will not have the "High beam assist " as my F31 has on it either, so only change will be the sat-nav.
Got back in mine and booted it all the way home and got 44 MPG, almost twice the M5's.
I thought Maybe new M3 next year.
Best regards J
