After driving the M3 for a month or so in Right Hand Drive form in the UK, I am fully used to and a fan of the HMI, very simple, intuitive and mainly distraction free.
However, I think there could be some driver ‘comfort/optimisations’ made to the layout.
For example, to close a window you have to stretch way out to the far left of the screen to click the X - why not have an X on the top right of windows so they are closer to the driver?
Similarly on say the music window why not mirror image (flip left to right side) so that the station/artist etc are not aligned on a vertical list on the far left of the window and screen, but are in a window to the left of the main speedo/traffic window, right aligned in that window so that the stretch and selection is much more simple.
I used to drive a Merc and it made a half hearted attempt at mirror imaging switches for RHD - but with a screen the possibilities should be greater.
Hope you get the idea?
