1) Guages look more like an updated e46, LOVE THAT
2) Steering wheel and quite a few other details look like carry-overs from all the "new" models (F0X, F1X and whatever F the new x3 is). Which is exactly what one should expect, thats how BMW has always done it. Newest technology in the 7er, flows down to the 5er, then to the 3er, etc, etc...
3) I still believe the window controls should be in the center, around the gear-shift, like my e46!
