    Active pedestrian protection

    The stealers also claim that the activators should be replaced every 5 years!

    Sat Nav Map Update

    I have a 2012 F11 and like Caesar i was not able to buy nav update from BMW Connected, so inspired by GT Steve I took a chance on the internet with bmwupdate.co I downloaded compressed files, download WinRAR, extracted the 41 files and upload it to the 64GB stick (with Fat32 formatted). Plugged the usb in to the port in my glove box and went to software update on the idrive and ......... then no FSC prompt, but get message- "No usb device with software connected to the usb audio interface......" Any of you knowledgeable guys know where i am going wrong? ps I also tried the centre console usb port too.

    Spare wheel kit F11

    I understand the offset is different and the E60 wheel will only fit with a spacer which will also need extended wheel bolts. Not sure how easy wheel change is with spacer on a wet cold January night. I have the same problem of finding a spare wheel having ditched run flats and only having gunk and tyre plugs. I have seen this online and wondered if anyone else had purchased same? The company seems legit. http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/182188628054?_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649&ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT

    As E39mad said its the water based paint used today, the Finnish is too soft. I don't think it helps that all the nose section is plastic too. As an alternative to venture shield I did look for the American style "bra" for the long euro trips but didn't find one available on the net for F10/11 models. Probably use film in USA now. Bet they can get it done for $100 compared to our £500.

    Rattle rattle

    On F11 the rake of the rear seat back is adjustable and depending on the angle I get rattle sometimes. do the saloons have this too? Just a thought.
  14. Mine is a 05/2012 and I also called the stealers and got the "nothing outstanding on the vehicle" reply. Seems to me its only vehicles still under the 3 year waranty that are getting the upgrade. I will just have to touch wood.
  15. Thank you Rosie - I will try this later
