Smile Knob for 5 pins idrive

Hey guys, so I have a Bmw 118i LCI 2017 and it has the 5 pins knob without nav. so is the smallest one that they could fit it. Anyway, if somebody else has the same problem that finds uncomfortable the knob, I bought this on Aliexpress and it's really good, fits perfectly and it's made like of steel. here's the link (they don't pay me or sth just make sure everyone can solve that problem). It took me a while to get it in my hands, but that's maybe because I'm from Chile, I really wish that if it's shipped to the U.S/EU/UK or any other country you guys can get it faster than I did (month and a half).
Bye!

Do you use the iDrive much? On a typical drive, I don't even touch it.

Some need both hands here, apparently. Relocating the steering wheel should be the way to go.

I drive mostly in the city, so I get a lot of traffic. Answering your question, yes I do.

I guess I have a lot to learn about what to use it for. What do you do with it in traffic?

Most of the time Spotify, calls, sometimes twitter and I'm always checking and exploring the menu's and status of the car etc.
Just buy it If you don't like the knob that's on the car, as simple as that tho

Thanks. I don't have twitter, and control calls and Spotify directly from steering wheel buttons. When I use the iDrive, it is mostly about the car status. Resetting tyre pressures, or setting time to summer or winter time.
