We have already seen the new 7 Series and the 3 Series Facelifted version featuring the new revised iDrive system. In a recent U.K document release , BMW has announced that the new 1 Series will be getting the new iDrive as well.

We announced earlier this month(new iDrive 1, 3 and 7 Series), that U.S models will be receiving the same treatment and today, to our surprise, some marketing photos popped up on a BMW related forum.

Pousa13, a member of 1addicts.com, has posted  some photos of a 1 Series convertible sporting the new navigation system along with the new iDrive setup.

Unfortunately, we are not 100% sure if any other models will be receiving the redesigned iDrive system, but we did quote one of our sources in the past, that stated the existing 5 Series will not receive the new system. Once again, BMW is known for changing things around pretty quick, so depending on when the exact new 5 Series release date might be, there is a possibility the existing 5er's will be equipped with the new iDrive. 

In the mean time, the 1 series fanatics will enjoy the new navigation system. 

Thanks again for the tip Jeff and also thank you to the 1addicts friends.
