Enter your destination while keeping the road in view or changing the vehicle configuration - it’s all possible at any time with the BMW i-Drive system. Using the central controller, the driver can easily select i-Drive functions with one hand.

And operation becomes even easier with the AC Schnitzer cover for the i-Drive system. The black anodized aluminium cover has an embossed image of an AC Schnitzer Type IV wheel. So the new design offers delights that are not only visual but also tangible, as the i-Drive functions can be controlled intuitively. The Type IV alloy and racing wheels have already proved their popularity in all vehicle classes, and now set their individual accent in the interior too.

The controller is the central control unit of the i-Drive system in BMW vehicles. Ergonomically mounted on the central console, the rotary pushbutton can easily be operated with one hand by both driver and passenger. And the intelligent operating concept is now further enhanced by the new design AC Schnitzer cover.

The new aluminium cover from AC Schnitzer is available for all BMW vehicles with the latest generation of i-Drive system. Naturally the familiar AC Schnitzer Aluminium Cover is still available for BMW vehicles with the previous generation of i-Drive system.

What Mitsubishi have is a bit different with what the iDrive console can do it is the same in concept but totally different on major purpose. What is good about that Mitsubishi controller is that is comes cheaper than this one, but what is good about this one, this not just about pure control its about interior accent.

If I’m not mistaken, Mitsubishi came up with a weather controller something device that one can place in their dashboard to manipulate almost everything in the car (aside from driving of course!) I saw it in my friend’s car who has recently transformed his old Mitsubishi Lancer into a monster car. But it’s not as flashy as for the BMW. I’d say that I prefer this one.

It’s too bad that I’m not driving a BMW. I would have wanted that in my car.

I checked on the i-Drive system. Using the central controller, the driver can easily select i-Drive functions with one hand. And operation becomes even easier with the AC Schnitzer cover for the i-Drive system. The intelligent operating concept is now further enhanced by the new design AC Schnitzer cover. The new aluminum cover from AC Schnitzer is available for all BMW vehicles with the latest generation of i-Drive system. This is definitely outstanding upgrade.

Although we have to remember that this upgrades do not come cheap after all. Maybe our benefits here is that we are given new ways to experience the Car in a new whole way specifically tuned to our preference.

I like companies who never stops from thinking on how technology can be imporved and developed. This is a cool development with AC Schnitzer for interior cover design.

This interior upgrade for the Idrive system is so fancy. But I like it and it shows that you can even dress up your interior with specific technology that fits perfectly for your car.

This Bimmer tuner is definitely impresive. In the welcome page of AC Schiitzer it says, "With AC Schnitzer products technology from motorsport is available to enthusiastic BMW and MINI drivers for everyday use. At a level which avoids compromises necessary in mass production, without any loss of unrestricted suitability for everyday use." In short, your car can be tuned up so specifically designed to your own taste, own preference and temperament. Now the price? That’s something you have to be prepared with.
