It looks the same as our X3, even though the screen at the front is at the middle of the dash and not at the top. The maps dvd is the same. We live in Germany, so the "Euro" mode is not an issue for him. It might be for us, as we have the assist option (not active yet nonetheless), but I don't think I'll care anything about it going away.
