Hmmm, iDrive in the 350 cockpit. I guess that would give Airbus pilots something to do at last, like spending 12-14 hours reading through a 12 lb. manual to figure out how to turn the thing on. I always find it strange when great companies come out with really stupid stuff (like GM from 1968 onward).

Maybe some kidney shaped intakes on the engines or kidney shaped windows!
As for i-drive, if they incorporate that into the IFE the safety demo will need to be followed by a 20 minute demo for women PAX My girlfriend still does not know how to use it properly in my car. Mind you I don't know how to properly use the oven at her place so...
