For many people, it seems that everything of the BMW E60 (2009-2010) looks good, however, as far as I am concerned, the radio screen is a little small, I would want a big touchscreen so that when I use navigation or watch videos, I can see clearer. Actually, this is the main reason I decide to upgrade my BMW E60’s basic screen.
