One thing I can’t get used to are the controls that require a steady finger such as the fan control. For instance, I always seem to hit a bump and end up turning the fan to 8 when I want 2. Older cars that tried going this route ended up putting in a pad for resting your wrist. Not my ideal solution but it could work. Some aftermarket manufacturer interested?
One trick from the aviation world is to get in the habit of hooking your fingers behind the display for stability and using your thumb to select things on the screen.
Having had our M3 for one month and one road trip, admittedly subjective impressions…
Seats are above average. Too bad the passenger doesn’t get adjustable lumbar support. Nav display is wonderful and voice searching for destinations works very well. A friend with a Tesla says the key to happiness is using voice commands. One such is just saying “I’m hot” or “I’m cold” to change cabin temp. Cute. I’m sure there are dozens we have not yet discovered.
Never spent time with the previous version of the software. First impression of the new one is that it’s “fine”, though that may be damning with faint praise. I wish the trip meter and odometer were constantly displayed - there’s certainly plenty of screen space available around the periphery to do so. Similarly, % battery remaining at destination should always be visible. I miss CarPlay less than I thought, but it would be nice having the option. Making a destination a “favorite” was not as intuitive as it could have been. And it would be nice being able to select more that one address as “home” - more than a few folks have more than one home.
But I will stipulate that the earlier version was overall better for many.
