Default BMW 5 Series interior testing spy photos



from the article:
Using the same kind of lightweight materials, the new 5er will also get a drastic weight reduction program along with these new tidbits. Proof in this regard are a couple of photos published by German magazine, BimmerToday, of a current F10 5 Series testing the touch-sensitive iDrive system we've seen on the 7 Series prototypes.

The screen is obviously different and seems out of place, not to mention the two wires that seem to be going somewhere under the dash. Yes, these are all signs that BMW is already testing the new generation infotainment on the 5 Series.

3 pictures and full article

That screen looks sooooooo aftermarket. One thing I think is out of place on the 3-Series; that screen should either be moulded into the dash or hide into the dash when the car is turned off.

I wonder why the two wires are out? it looks awkward.

i dont understand why bmw does this. it looks like the screen was an afterthought, and just placed there with no reason.

I would speculate that is for testing the touch-sensing screen.
