IIRC, Josh's M3 is MY2016. No idea if/when there was a transition.

My 2 series is a 2017, and does not have a touch screen but a touch controller (is that what you guys are talking about? Our 2016 X5 does not.

Looks like the 2 is NBT Evo (the Next Big Thing Evolution) ID5/ID6.

The X5 is NBT
(CIC-HIGH, also called the Next Big Thing – NBT)

It appears different models have different screens (touch and not):

I have my (audio quality) limits... lol

Never had an 8 track.

Home stereo wise, for analogue sources - I do have 2 reel to reel's, 4 or 5 cassette decks, 2 turntables.... a couple of tuners... as sources.
Will be paring down after the house and shop get settled. I think this summer...

Yep. Whatís confusing is that some vehicles got ID5 with a touch screen (my momís x1) while some did not (my x3). Probably depended on plant/production date. ID6 is the same hardware but just a different home screen (you can even ďcodeĒ an id5 car to give it the ID6 interface) - and I think all ID6 cars have a touch screen.

The touch screen is almost a necessity with carplay (very frustrating to use without one)

Iím still such a bmw nerd.

I have ID5, I think. It is SO much better than what's in the older X5.

Agree. I loved that system in my x3. First (and only) infotainment system Iíve really liked. Everything just worked so well. Thatís one of the reasons carplay annoys me so much - how is it that a trillion dollar tech company like Apple canít do any better? Even Bmws voice recognition seemed better than Siri!
