also, that pic is photoshopped and the tails aren't going to look like that.
as far as driver oriented cockpits, i think ever since the e46, its been moving away towards a cockpit that surrounded the driver. I went from an E36 to and E46 and so far, nothing has been able to give the feeling like the E36 did. You felt surrounded by all the instruments and controls. I think thats starting to go away with the newer BMW's.
i'm not nit picking, i love the interior of my E46, the E90 is different. im sure in the end it will end up working for me if i every get one.
