Don't get too excited about touchscreen and suspension settings gents.

BMW are always making improvements these days and the roll outs come in multi releases rather than a fixed LCI release.

I had my car coded last weekend and the guys found a few available options for gesture control. This is currently on 5 & 7 series but its obviously coming to 4 series too. Probably just a matter of a few short months

Then touch screen will be 'out of date'

It does mirroring for android but not iPhone. Apple CarPlay is the only option for iOS.

Yeah and tbh I can't say touch screen excites me. Per the previous posts it's just a pain to keep clean/scratch free and is also less "heads up" than using the HUD, idrive control and wheel controls. Bit of a gimmick.

It's retrograde many cars have had it for years.

Touchscreen is absolutely garbage, dangerous and full of thumbprints.Dont know how it's allowed to be honest.

It only really makes sense with CarPlay as the buttons are massive on screen.
