2012 12-speaker system: speed-adjusted volume?

I have a '12 x5d on order that goes to production shortly and I want to confirm whether or not the base in the 12 (the upgraded 12-speaker system) has the speed-adjusted volume that compensates for road noise? The brochure seems to indicate it's only on the 16-speaker premium sound (ZSP or whatever it is).

Does anyone have their 12 X5(d) yet without premium sound and can confirm it has the feature?

Actually i believe its on the enhanced 752 package that suppresses noise.

This is an additional $600 over the premium sound package, but ive heard its pretty good.

Late january, i can give u my official review.

Are you talking about the iDrive setting, where you can adjust how much speaker volume increases when speed increases?

@Seattle/@c-bolt, yes, that's what I'm talking about. I had it in my E46 so I was surprised that it might not be in the E70. Thanks for confirming that it works in the base!

I know I have had this option on every E70 and E60 that I have owned. Just increases the volume of the radio as you go faster. There is no noise suppression.
