Having the ability to read text and email in your car has got to be the ultimate non-feature.
While we are at it, why would you want to watch a DVD on your nav screen? Why would you want to post a FB update, or tweet, from iDrive?
The entire BMW Apps/ConnectedDrive/Whatever seems like a massive mis-allocation of money and effort to me.
How about they put some lenses on the reading lights, or some nicer plastic on the doors and dash, or sound lining under the hood, or a nice retractable cargo cover, or any of the dozens of other "built to a budget" things that are all over the X1?
