    Spoke to ConnectedDrive helpline and they agreed it should be available already. Escalated to Germany.... hope its resolved before Brexit. Thanks, i might have bought it otherwise.

    Hows that? It expires at 36k. The service interval is about half that so youre going to have to be lucky to score two services as most high milers wont flag a CBS service needed until 18k miles or more each time. Second service costs are usually £500+, bmw just arent that generous.

    Yeah, that's what i hoped however it was approved used, perhaps someone claimed it when new in ConnectedDrive and it doesn't pass over.

    As far as i can see you get oil change + microfilter for that (1st service) which seems a bit steep. Air and fuel filters arent needed until second service at least, and Im not sure 36k is enough to hit that, is it?

    Got all that but for a car thats only 12 months old its asking me to pay for USB map updates. Or £130 for OTA plus manual it seems. Are free map updates included with some options or am i being hopelessly optimistic?

    Cheers, might check that out myself then. Pity it doesn't spell it out on the BMW Service website.

    Looks like you can buy from a third party who will supply FSC code plus coding files on usb, at about half the cost of the BMW 3-year subscription! The official subscription isnt available for all G30s (its not on mine) From what ive read if you dont have extended bluetooth you may also need a £20 WLAN aerial plugging into the back of the NBT nav unit in your dash to allow your phone to connect. That could be the reason bmw themselves wont offer it via the ConnectedDrive store to certain vehicles.

    So many examples of less than careful drivers in the rain. Yesterday watched a Merc A-class stop too far over at a junction on a hill, large artic came along to turn and needed more space to get round so the Merc had to move. However they seemed to have completely forgotten the large van fronting a long queue of traffic just a few yards behind back down the hill.... Told me daughter to "watch this" and with the van's horn blaring we sat back and watched the Merc reverse squarely into front of the van. Crunch.

    Google maps finally

    Yep, you can do everything, and it works 90% of time.... finally! Although i did find my iPhone was more reliable. The last/next track info is usually out of sync on Android but thats the only really irritating thing aside from the BT compression I think i can hear.

    I might need to add Carplay then, is it via usb - any opinion on audio quality as my spotty downloads are all extreme quality...
