    Sensetec is the nasty fake leather stuff they cover the dash in, the stitching looks good but the rest does not. An X4 I test drove had it and I thought it cheapens the dash, prefer the soft touch plastic personally.
    I think these cars are great value with the 2 litre engine, but at the upper end of the range they simply get too expensive and the interior does not reflect that. For example, the X4 I drove would have been £60k, it had the nasty fake leather dash and no memory seats or HUD. Not great value for money. But £45k is a different ball game and the car makes more sense.

    I'm more 'Old School' - I prefer the analogue dials. All readings increase in a clockwise direction. It's just more logical and conventional.
    Many of these styling options are counter intuitive. "If it ain't broke, don't fix it". :nono:

    But I do understand the reason - to give a larger area for other information.
