That's exactly what BMW's iDrive Touch is. A track pad on the top of the iDrive knob.

I didn't know the top was a touch sensitive surface.  I thought it was a knob that turned and went in all directions.

This is new to some of their 2014 models, and if I'm not mistaken it was in some of the 2013 EU models.

Sorry, but I don't really keep up to date on what BMTroubleU does. I'm a Mercedes kind of person.  That's what I prefer.  Nothing personal, I just find I fit better in a Mercedes.  I've had friends that let me drive their older Bimmers and I never liked the ergonomics, everyone has their own favorite as far as what feels best for their body type.  I can't stand Japanese cars and never felt right in any of them that I've been in.  Same goes with US cars.
