    E60 CCC Android system upgrade

    It currently won't recognise my SD card, reformatting for the last time. I'll have to rip the car apart again and use a USB drive. Don't forget USB extension leads people.

    It'll probably be one of the pinholes either side of the sd card slot on the left of the screen

    I'll add some more thoughts once I get everything sorted. Adding an SD card with music will be the main benefit for me. I want an mp3 player that can browse folders, so you can listen to other artists or genres easily. I watched a trailer for Furious 7 that came with it and the display was very impressive. I can't envisage me sitting in a car watching movies, you can't really have it on while driving and you'd probably start having battery power concerns if you did. I'm adding google music and Amazon music apps to try out. There's no radio in the GUI menus, there may be a widget or something I haven't spotted or you may have to go back to the original I drive and use that. I don't listen to the radio much at all, but seems odd it isn't there. Male to female USB leads might be useful if you buy one so you can extend them to the glovebox to access a USB drive or an accessory without having to strip everything down again.

    Installed it today. Fairly straightforward, I had to remove some clips from the big multi plugs before they would fit. Getting them to hide behind the cd/dvd player again was a pain in the arse. I fitted a screen protector that has an annoying bubble in one corner, looks fine when in my hands, only shows up when installed. I'll redo that another time. It didn't help much with the sun's glare though. The std android keyboard is an absolute pain in the arse to use, Swiftkey made a massive difference. The std BMW Idrive homepage doesn't display correctly, everything else is okay though. The volume is great on it, pull down the top of the screen and there's an additional volume control that should sort any issues you have. Just need to sort out steering wheel controls and voice control would be nice when searching for apps or addresses in navigation. Waze and Carly downloaded, still need setting up

    Increased Emmissions

    Yeah, there might be a small blockage. Check the hoses for vacuum leaks too.

    Increased Emmissions

    One relates to the EGR valve, the other is saying your DPF requires replacement because it's done a set amount of miles. That one needs resetting. Have a search of the forum on that.

    Clarification: Cars after Sept 09 must have working reverse lights too.

    HIDs on a sept 09 or 2012 or later without headlight washers is a fail iirc. Something like that.

    They look great.

    Yeah, definitely wedge type, halogens too. I don't think it's worth the cost or the hassle to change the headlights.

    I'm pretty certain my halos have W5W wedge sidelight bulbs.
