    F11 Navigation Upgrade - BMW won't Help

    Do you mean a new navigation map version or new actual iDrive !? The former should be much easier... the latter is probably possible but very expensive. Plenty go the ebay route and most seem happy. Try asking in the f10 forum for specifics.

    G30/G31 Audio upgrade notes

    Funny man! An easily removable JL audio box is going in the boot. Obviously the pic is of one of the new Match underseat subs.

    What an idiot !!

    Been rocking the roads of North wales after dark and they're ok on full beam but its too blue and there are very visible areas of beam where light is concentrated or missing. I'll get a shot next time. I find dipped beam far more problematic - doesn't light enough up on a completely dark road and you can barely see the headlight output if the streetlighting is decent. Add rain and its twice as bad - if i had to drive for work I'd either need to try icons or consider a different car. Wonder if xenon bulbs can be retrofitted to the lens!? Ultimately im going to say led headlights cost them far less to produce than the ballast and bulb required for xenon, plus no headlight wash required so massive saving! And sod the customer. The illuminated msport sills and blackpool interior lighting really don't make up for it! On the plus side the ride is so much better than the f10, even mrs superdave commented how quiet it was.

    This ^^^^ Aside from the crappy std led headlight output this has to be the most useless feature. The f10 was far better in comparison for parking sensors. I reverse off a sloping drive every day and the sensors give off more false readings than an episode of Most Haunted.

    Apple Music starting by itself in the car

    Yep, Android. The integration with bmws is far flakier, lucky to get music at all sometimes.
  6. Custom fit replacement door mids and tweeters - a direct bolt on for F10, F11 and others etc. . Ideal if you have door tweeter grills already, but the kit also includes tweeter mounts that could be fitted. Kit includes template and screws for this. More info: https://www.focal.com/en/car-audio/car-audio-kits-solutions/integration/plugplay/focal-bmwr/ifbmw-s They were removed from a previous install so show signs of use, are in excellent working order but are just too deep to fit the newer G-series so I'm selling them. Only negative is a crack in one of the mid corner mounts, but its 3-4mm thick ABS plastic and won't budge so doesn't affect the sound. Includes 4 spare genuine door clips, original Focal decals and instruction manual as pictured. The kit still retails at £280 new, can do £140 posted for forum members. On Ebay next week, very rarely come up used.

    BMW Connected Drive portal is a bit flaky

    I basically run a standalone iphone with a cheap data sim as a Spotify mule. Would love them to support Android properly like VW do.
  8. Because a few hundred quid for perhaps 30% torque+power increase is relatively a bargain compared to buying the next model, and the risk of failure? Has anyone here heard of a more recent gearbox or turbo failing-the first generation M57 diesels seemed to chew them up far more regularly even when there were comparatively few around.

    USB map update?

    I applied a couple of new maps in my old Lci 530 and they seemed absolutely fine.

    If youre trying with Android just give up, Apple integration still seems to be way ahead.

    Electric cars to be mandated 8 years earlier

    Surely they can just extend this self-imposed deadline a bit when its obvious there's no actual plan and no practical way of achieving what they initially promised?

    USB map update?

    You'll probably need a 64gb stick to transfer. Takes an absolute age to download and unpack too.

    Bowel Cancer Awareness Month - please read

    Bump. Alright its not next April yet but I'm still hanging on in there six months later so just a timely reminder guys, if you get the option for screening or even one of the symptoms of this shitty () disease, it just takes a few seconds to think it over. Don't just ignore...

    F30 330d M Sport...

    Absolutely, they're just different cars built to do things differently. Having driven a few F30s, owned a couple of F10s and now a G31, for someone my size (6'4) with kids and large stuff to shift occasionally the new 5 does pretty much everything better except maybe for the standard led headlights which I find are a bit poor compared to the F10's old xenons, especially in rain.

    G31 front doors - Squeaky when wet?

    Seems like return to e39 days! I'll give the lube a go first.
